Free at Last

by Chris Schroder

To develop the next generation of peaceful leaders and to honor the spirit of Dr. King, Coretta Scott King founded the nonprofit organization The Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change following her husband’s tragic assassination in 1968.

In 1981, the center was moved to the National Historic Site on Auburn Avenue, which includes Dr. King’s birth home, his beloved Ebenezer Church and final resting place.

The King Center, which hosts nearly one million visitors each year, is currently hosting a 10-day observance to commemorate the great Dr. King’s birthday on January 19, the 30th MLK national holiday.
