This timeline is an homage to Mrs. Coretta Scott King, the architect of the King legacy, reflecting more than 50 years of unwavering dedication to community, cultural, and socio-economic progress rooted in the methodology and philosophy of nonviolent social change developed by her husband, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr
More than a historic chronology, this timeline depicts the power, passion, and wisdom of a love-centered leader. A mother. A visionary. Creator of The King Center. Champion of the MLK federal holiday. Holder of the high watch ensuring millions worldwide adopt Kingian nonviolence as a way of life.
This timeline demonstrates Mrs. King’s belief in what is possible for every one of us to achieve. Building the Beloved Community through a radical and courageous commitment to love. Challenging us all to be love in the face of opposition and violence. As Mrs. King said:
“Struggle is a never-ending process. Freedom is never really won. You earn it and win it in every generation.”
Celebrate the legacy of Mrs. King and The King Center.
