The King Center for Nonviolent Social Change was established in 1968 by Coretta Scott King to be a living memorial and tribute to MLK Jr. The center is both a traditional museum and memorial as well as a center for social change in Atlanta. Approximately one million individuals pass through the King center annually.


  • In 1977, a memorial tomb was dedicated, and the remains of Martin Luther King Jr. were moved from South View Cemetery to the plaza that is nestled between the center and the church.
