Dexter Scott King, the son of the late civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife Coretta Scott King, passed away on Monday after a battle with prostate cancer. He was 62 years old. Dexter King served as the chairman of The King Center in Atlanta and was also the president of the King estate. A lawyer by profession, he dedicated his life to preserving his father’s legacy and protecting the King family’s intellectual property.

Dexter King was only 7 years old when his father was tragically assassinated in 1968. His passing marked the end of a carefree childhood, as described in his memoir “Growing Up King.” Many noted his striking resemblance to his father, and he even portrayed Martin Luther King Jr. in a television movie in 2002.

The King family has faced several losses over the years, including the deaths of Coretta Scott King in 2006 and their oldest child, Yolanda King, in 2007. Dexter King’s sudden passing has brought immense sorrow to the family, and they have requested prayers during this difficult time.
