Title:Martin Luther King, Jr., Research and Education Institute

Web site for the Stanford University-based Martin Luther King, Jr., Research and Education Institute which works in cooperation with the Martin Luther King, Jr. family to publish and preserve the speeches, writings, and correspondence of Martin Luther King.

The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
