The spirit of activism is alive and well in the millions of lives that great American touched, and is very much alive in the direct descendants of the man himself, especially his young granddaughter, Yolanda Renee King. Check out the fire in this kid.
True activists know the first reaction is never loud enough. This kid has one heckuva jump start in a career in public service, and the rest of the internet is feeling her message.
What an angel what a spokeswoman I believe you you’re the hope for this world 💕— Kim (@juschlln) January 15, 2018
Yolanda comes from a great lineage of activism in the pursuit of equality, and it's worth reflection on the rest of the King family as well.
As you honor my father today, please remember and honor my mother, as well. She was the architect of the King Legacy and founder of @TheKingCenter, which she founded two months after Daddy died.

Let's take a note from Martin, Coretta and Yolanda and find the ways we can engage with our communities.
