Martin Luther King lll, the oldest son of the late Martin and Coretta Scott King, began his tenure as president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1998 where he aggressively fought injustice on many fronts.

The SCLC convened police brutality and racial profiling hearings in several states that led to the passage of anti-racial profiling resolutions. He has led protests against the digital divide in the field of technology and has spoken to the United Nations on behalf of individuals living with the challenges of AIDS.

“We are especially honored this year to welcome Martin Luther King lll to Broward County as our distinguished guest,” said Sheryl A. Woods, YMCA president.
