    King joins AAMA, which, led by Dr. Mia Williams, works to ensure that the educational environment across the system supports the brilliance and excellence of Black boys and teens.

    King has been working with youth in the Seattle Community for 18 years, with most of that work serving African American youth. King grew up in a marginalized community in South Central, Los Angeles and accredits the bulk of his knowledge and understanding of how to be of service in African American communities to his own experiences.

    King has worked in Seattle Public Schools through the Seattle Parks and Recreation's Community Learning Center for 14 years, mainly at Denny International Middle School. He was a first-generation Kingmakers of Seattle facilitator at Denny International and Aki Kurose middle schools and first-generation My Brother’s Keeper coordinator at Denny.

    Through his experience with mentorship, King brings passion, leadership, and dedication to the Seattle Public Schools community and AAMA office. His love for supporting young black males is undeniably proven.
