MLK's daughter Bernice King posted several moving tweets yesterday and over the weekend in honor of her father's birthday, reminding us to honor him AND her mother Coretta Scott King, who was instrumental in establishing the holiday in Dr. King's honor. And today, she gave us a vital reminder that one day of remembrance doesn't replace the work we need to do going forward... see both tweets in full below.
And if you didn't get a chance to celebrate King Day yesterday or want to continue your celebration, University of Chicago is hosting a free event tonight (Tuesday) at 6pm at Rockefeller Chapel on their Hyde Park Campus. It features performances from Chicago Children's Choir and a keynote address from the first African-American female reporter at the Washington Post, Dorothy Butler Gilliam. Get details here.
