ATLANTA (AP) -Martin Luther King III has resigned as president of TheKing Center.     King announced his resignation on Tuesday, a day after the nation observed the federal holiday marking his father’s birthday. In a statement, King says he will remain an active member of the King Center board of trustees, but will devote most of his efforts towards launching a new organization dedicated to the principles of nonviolence, social justice and human rights.
