King Boston is a privately funded non-profit working closely with
the City of Boston to create a new memorial and programs about
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King and their time and
work together in Boston. We have held fourteen community meetings to
solicit input from our neighbors. King Boston is now working on the
- A world-class memorial on the Boston Common, the location
of marches and speeches for hundreds of years in our city.
- The creation of a new "King Center for Economic Justice" in Roxbury
where we will work to improve economic disparities across our city.
- A $1M endowment with the Twelfth Baptist Church to do
MLK-related programming, honoring MLK's time preaching at Twelfth
Baptist while he lived in Boston.
- A new documentary about MLK and CSK, focused
on their lives and work together in Boston.
