Alveda is the daughter of Rev. A. D. King and Mrs. Naomi King, the granddaughter of Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr. and Mrs. Alberta Williams King, and the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
King is an "ardent supporter of art, history and science," who says: "Throughout history artistic expressions, science and philosophy have been interwoven 'forces' which when combined can help to direct the socioeconomic shifts that impact the reality of humanity in the universe. Often we discover that throughout history some of our greatest 'minds' have never been limited to one scope of creativity. Thus the poet can also chart the stars, the physicist can paint remarkable portraits, the composer can weld the surgeon's scalpel; the architect can program computers; and so on and so forth. These gifts are not confined to genre, skin color, class, nurture, nature, age or gender. They are divine blessings to humanity. May the gift of '... And Let there Be Art' inspire you to seek and experience the benefits of the blessings."
The event which is intended to be "a public service" is free and open to the public.
