Here at the King Center, we value the health and safety of our visitors and staff. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Freedom Hall and The King Center Bookstore will be closed to the public beginning, Tuesday, March 17, 2020. We will remain closed through the end of the month. Out of concern for our staff and their families, all King Center employees will work remotely until April 2.
All of our events through April 15th are postponed. For up-to-date information, please follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We will also post here as updates become available.
We prepare global citizens to create a more just, humane and peaceful world using Dr. King’s nonviolent philosophy and methodology (Nonviolence365®).
