KING LIBRARY AND ARCHIVES (KLA) was established with a mission to “promote the appropriate application of archival principles in the preservation, processing, arrangement and description of materials relevant to the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the modern civil rights movement.” 1 The KLA serves to promote research and study; acquire and preserve collections; and disseminate information on MLK and the CRM. KLA houses a vast collection of records and artifacts documenting the life and work of MLK, CSK, the 20th Century Civil Rights Movement (CRM) spanning the years 1956-1970, and the King Center itself. This historic collection serves as a vital primary resource on a crucial period in American history.
