Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr., can be an historical act: today the United States recalls him and his nonviolent efforts to make it more just. Remembering Dr. King can also be a personal action. The King Center describes it as cultivating a “nonviolent frame of mind.” This frame of mind is part of the King philosophy, kept alive by the Center and worth re-exploring. 
Established in 1968 by Mrs. Coretta Scott King, The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change (“The King Center”) has been a global destination, resource center and community institution for over a quarter century. Nearly a million people each year make pilgrimage to the National Historic Site to learn, be inspired and pay their respects to Dr. King’s legacy.
Both a traditional memorial and programmatic nonprofit, the King Center was envisioned by its founder to be “no dead monument, but a living memorial filled with all the vitality that was his, a center of human endeavor, committed to the causes for which he lived and died.” [Source: About King Center]
