The Success in Education Foundation is thrilled to announce that they are bringing Dr. Bernice King, daughter of Martin Luther King Jr. to Salt Lake City as part of their Women Who Succeed initiative. Dr. King and Kathi Garff will be discussing non-violence initiatives for youth, her new work with “The King Center”, and the influence her parents had on her life.
Dr. Bernice A.

In this position, Bernice continues to advance her parents’ legacy of nonviolent social change through policy, advocacy, research, as well as education & training through the Kingian philosophy of nonviolence, which she re-branded Nonviolence365™️ (NV365). Through her work at The King Center, she educates youth and adults around the world about the nonviolent principles and strategies modeled by her parents. Under her leadership, the Center has implemented numerous initiatives reaching over 500,000 people around the world, including the Beloved Community Leadership Academy, Students with King, NV365 Education & Training, and The Beloved Community Talks, a courageous conversations platform about the difficult racial and social justice issues impacting our world. Dr. King led the development of an NV365 certification program for trainers, which provides individuals with the opportunity to teach the NV365 curriculum on behalf of The King Center.
