I am deeply saddened by the loss of Dexter Scott King, who once served as CEO of the King Center, and spent his entire life working side by side with his siblings in continuing to advance the legacy and work of his mother and father. 

Living in the shadow of giants is never an easy task, but Dexter thoughtfully, quietly, consistently, and passionately poured himself into the work of protecting his father’s legacy and global intellectual property.  Dexter had a keen intellect, was super smart and detailed about everything he touched, and not as well known by most, he was a creative artist as well. 


On behalf of myself, my wife Chaitra, and the entire HOPE family, I extend our heartfelt sympathies to his brother Martin, his sister Bernice, his wife Leah, and the King Center community.  As friends to the King family, my heart is heavy today, and my deepest condolences go out to my friends Bernice and Martin, and their entire extended family. 

Today, the cause lost a warrior. May we all resolve to step up in his memory, and continue the unfinished work of advancing opportunity for all.
