WHAT WE DO
The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Foundation was established on January 30, 1989, to honor the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr, the Civil Rights Movement, and the ongoing struggle for freedom and human rights in the United States. Our foundation is committed to educating the public about the life and work of Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement, as well as continuing the fight for justice and equality for all people.
Remembering The Legacy
On February 4, 1968, in his famous "Drum Major For Justice" speech, in part, Dr. King said, ".....and I want you to be able to say that I did try in my life to clothe those who were naked. I want you to say on that day; I did try in my life to visit those who were in prison. I want you to say that I tried to love and serve humanity..." The MLK Memorial Foundation's sole purpose is to preserve and promote the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the ongoing history of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States of America.
As many of us make resolutions to better ourselves each January, Dr. King's legacy still provides another opportunity to practice nonviolence and to form "a more perfect union." MLK's clarion call to America to do right by its citizens domestically and all humanity internationally was exemplified by his immortal speech on August 28, 1963, in Washington, D.C., and again on April 4, 1967, in New York, and finally on April 3, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee.
The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Foundation's members consider our activities, prefaced by Dr. King's name, to be sacrosanct and inviolate. We are a non-partisan organization with no fealty, association, or bent to political parties.
The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Foundation has been working tirelessly to promote and uphold the legacy of Dr. King, the Civil Rights Movement, and the ongoing struggle for freedom and Human Rights in the United States. Our work includes organizing events, seminars, and conferences that promote equality and justice. Pictured below are the MLK Holiday Grand Parade, The Juneteenth Freedom Walk Parade, The Miss Juneteenth Scholarship Pageant. The Equal Rights Initiative of Montgomery, Alabama, and our Food Ministry efforts.
