Dr. Bernice A. King, youngest daughter of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the chief executive officer of The King Center.

Dr. King is a minister, activist and public speaker, focusing on social justice, nonviolence and personal motivation – particularly among young people. She also is a member of Georgia’s state bar, and served as a law clerk in the Fulton County (GA) juvenile court system.

Dr. King spearheaded the Aug. 28 “Let Freedom Ring” event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and her father’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech. The event included President Obama and former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, as well as international leaders, dignitaries and entertainers.

A powerful speaker, Dr. King delivered her first sermon at Ebenezer Baptist, the church of her father and grandfather.  She has spoken at the United Nations, the White House, and locations around the world. She is the founder of the nonprofit Be A King organization, whose mission is to help generations of people elevate the way they think, act, live and lead.

The King Center in Atlanta, which she leads, is the largest repository in the world of primary source materials on Martin Luther King, Jr., and the American civil rights movement.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
