Martin Luther King, Jr. Died Intestate

Mlk1Today we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., one of the main leaders of the American Civil Rights Movement.

Dr. King devoted all of his income and talent to the movement. He died intestate, leaving less than $30,000 in his estate. Some of that money was already earmarked for the movement.

Additional information about Dr. King’s legacy is available on NPR’s Talk of the Nation entitled The Legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.
