Yolanda King Dies at 51


The daughter of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King and Coretta Scott King, Yolanda King died on May 15th in her Santa Monica, California home. At press time no cause of death was determined.

An actress and outspoken activist in her own right Yolanda King was 51 years old. Yolanda Denise King was born in Montgomery Alabama on November 17, 1955 and was the first-born child of her famous parents.

She was a member of the Board of Directors of the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, Inc. (the official national memorial to her father) and was founding Director of the King Center's Cultural Affairs Program. She served on the Partnership Council of Habitat for Humanity, was a member of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, a sponsor of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom and held a lifetime membership in the NAACP. King received a B.A. degree with honors from Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, a Masters degree in Theatre from New York University and an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Marywood University. In 1978 she starred as Rosa Parks in the TV miniseries King (which was based on her father's life and released on DVD in 2005).

She leaves behind her younger siblings Martin Luther King III, Dexter Scott King, and Rev. Bernice Albertine King.
