Forever Preserved

The King Center, the official living memorial to Martin Luther King Jr., compiled a digital archive of an estimated 200,000 documents relating to the life and legacy of the slain civil rights leader. Included are photos, rare handwritten notes, and even hate mail from King’s critics. Here’s a look at just some of the rare artifacts featured in the collection.—Britt Middleton
