Yolanda King tribute

My favorite of the King children and the one King-aside from her mother, that I always wanted to meet. Yolanda projected a serenity and grace that only comes from the comfort of knowing who and whose you are.  May she and her parents rest in the loving embrace of the Lord.

  1. She was the only one of Dr. King’s children that seemed to truly understand the legacy her father and mother created and bravely embraced their legacy as her own. I take comfort that she’s in God’s loving care now.
    The jury’s still out on Dexter and Bernice, though, and Martin III is a question mark as well, but not to the extent of Dexter and Bernice.

    This is a beautiful tribute. She seemed to be a lovely woman, and definitely the one King child who was dedicated to the spirit of her father’s work. Gone much too soon.😦
