THE KINGS CELEBRATE MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY

Martin Luther King III, the son of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., his wife Arndrea, his daughter Yolanda Renee attended a Martin Luther King Day ceremony at the MLK Memorial in Washington on January 20th:

Dignitaries and celebrities participated in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on the National Mall. The Rev. Al Sharpton, Martin Luther King III, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, comedian Dick Gregory and actors Jamie Foxx and Chris Tucker were among those who attended Sunday’s event.

Foxx told a crowd that packed the memorial that this is a “spectacular time” for African-Americans.

Sharpton called the weekend an “intersection of history,” with the nation’s first black president taking the oath of office for a second term the same weekend as the federal holiday commemorating King’s life. Sharpton says there was a time when no one believed the country would have either a black president or a federal holiday for a black civil rights leader (Source).

    Lovely little family. But I wonder why the late MLK (God bless his soul) only got a single grandchild from his four children. I had expected him having more.
