MARTIN LUTHER KING, III

 

Martin Luther King, III, the second child of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King, has motivated audiences around the world with his insightful message of hope and civility. He has taken up the torch of his parents and continued the quest for equality and justice for all people. He has traveled extensively around the globe spreading the message of nonviolence and its role in resolving global, international, and cross-cultural, conflicts.

A human rights advocate, social activist and political leader, Mr. King has been actively involved in significant policy initiatives to maintain the fair and equitable treatment of all peoples, at home and abroad. His missions have taken him to numerous nations throughout Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. His messages and initiatives are all rooted within the tenets of nonviolent social change and conflict resolution.

 

His current work is through the Drum Major Institute, an organization originally co-founded by his father and recently reorganized by Mr. King and William Wachtel. In addition to public service as an elected commissioner of Fulton County Georgia, Mr. King has served as the president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, also co-founded by his father, and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social change, founded by his mother after the assassination of his father. He has himself co-founded several organizations including Realizing the Dream, a nonprofit non-governmental organization that fosters nonviolent peace and development strategies.

 

Mr. King graduated from his father’s alma mater, Morehouse College, where he eared the B.A. degree in political science. He is the husband of Arndrea Waters and together they have a daughter named Yolanda Renee King.
