Our Story

The Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Center was founded by Oakland community organizers responsible for what was the first and largest Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. march and rally on the west coast. After years of organizing major region-wide commemorations of Dr. King’s life and work, leadership from that body determined that an organization dedicated to carrying out the principles which guided Dr. King, would provide valuable community uplift in the nettlesome task of navigating impacts of race divides, poverty, and violence affecting schools and communities (1995).The activists organized busloads of East Bay community members who traveled to Sacramento and testified on a bill creating a state sanctioned center dedicated to the Life and Legacy of Dr. King, civic engagement, youth, and nonviolence. The legislation was written by then State Assembly member Barbara Lee, and enjoyed the support of Governor Pete Wilson.
