THE KING CENTER FOR ECONOMIC JUSTICE, slated to launch this summer at the Boston Public Library branch in Roxbury, will be the action component of King Boston’s two-pronged strategy to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King. The goal of the King Center is to reduce economic disparities by race in Boston. Since 2018, King Boston community meetings, teach-ins and essay contests have engaged and activated a broad community of constituents to work for economic justice. Based on resident feedback, the King Center’s initial focus will be employment and micro business development.
