Martin Luther King Jr.'s Granddaughter Gave A Moving Version Of 'I Have Dream' Speech In DC
2 months ago

On Saturday, March 24, people from all around the nation gathered in Washington D.C. for the March for Our Lives, organized by survivors of the shooting in Parkland, Florida, which called on lawmakers to enact stricter gun control laws and stop school shootings in the United States. Before the actual march, many young people gave inspiring speeches talking about why they thought gun control was important to the future. One guest took many by surprise and delivered beautiful words to a cheering crowd: Yolanda King, granddaughter of the famed civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Yolanda drew on her family's legacy to call for an end to gun violence.

In that moment, it was hard not to feel the weight of history.

But now it's time for a new generation to take up the reigns!

Twitter was beyond inspired...

The power of words should never be underestimated!

And what Martin Luther King, Jr. think of his granddaughter?

King's speech softened even the hardest hearts.

And she absolutely melted everyone else.

We have a bright future ahead of us.
