Estate of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Partners with New Media Company To Preserve King’s Legacy

To enhance and amplify Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy, Intellectual Properties Management, Inc. (IPM), the licensing and management arm of the Estate of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Inc. (King, Inc.), has partnered with P3 Media. The parties will work together to develop new ideas that promote, preserve and protect Dr. King‘s legacy and intellectual property in media projects.

Given the occurrence of historically inaccurate media projects, King, Inc. is taking a more intentional and proactive approach to presenting Dr. King’s life through television and film. The partnership will evaluate new opportunities to collaborate with other parties interested in using Dr. King’s intellectual property for creative applications.

“Before my brother Dexter’s recent passing, he and I felt that this partnership represents an extraordinary opportunity to share with new audiences and future generations the enduring messages of justice, equality and compassion that my father ardently championed throughout his lifetime,” says Dr. Bernice A. King, the youngest child of civil rights leaders Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King.

“By collaborating closely with P3, we have the unique ability to amplify these timeless ideals and ensure that they resonate powerfully with people around the globe. It creates an opportunity for my brother Martin and I, as the remaining Shareholders of King, Inc., to continue the aim of ensuring that our father’s legacy is accurately portrayed.” 

Through this new collaboration, P3 Media will safeguard and promote Dr. King’s profound legacy. The production company will help ensure that Dr. King’s life, timeless writings and history-making speeches are aptly utilized to advance the Civil Rights leader’s ideals of nonviolence, racial justice and equality for all. P3 Media’s management team includes board member Ashley Bell.

“It’s a profound privilege to work with King, Inc. to bring Dr. King’s transformative words and indomitable spirit to people everywhere while safeguarding his remarkable legacy,” Bell shares in a statement. “Together, we will harness the power of various media to honor Dr. King’s life’s work and inspire and empower audiences worldwide.”
