A Walk Down Memory Lane

But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. (John 1:12 NLT)

Beloved, I’m writing to you today from my position of being God’s child. His love guides me to thank you for praying during the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of my Uncle M.L.’s I HAVE A DREAM and The March on Washington. Please visit FRONTLINES to see a photo collection of what I’m calling my “private civil rights tour” for about three weeks, culminating on 8/28. It started at the hosts JC Watts and Charles and Kay James, founders of the Gloucester Institute at a civil rights summit with friends at the historic Moton Home where I sat under the very old tree where MLK worked on his famous IHAD speech.

Next, after a brief visit home it was on to PFL and then to Virginia for a strategy session and to a live performance of two very different stage plays, “Menopause” (a hoot indeed) and “Noah” with the incomparable God breathed Sight and Sound Production Company. My hosts, the founders of the “Women’s Refreshing Conference” also took me to the Gettysburg Museum.

Then to DC for the 50th Celebration. There, the highlights for me were speeches by my cousin Bernice King, sitting on the front row with Father Frank Pavone who also appeared on the Interfaith Program. The Willard Hotel hosted a fabulous Commemorative Gospel Concert, and my mother spoke at a youth conference.

Stay tuned for the release of a song I wrote, LET FREEDOM RING, remixed in honor of the occasion.

Coming in 2014 is the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act so KEEP PRAYING!

God bless you and thanks again.

    Ms King:

    I am a faculty advisor to the Students for Life group at Roanoke College (Virginia). We want to ask if you could come to the College to speak, preferably in February 2014 as part of Black History month.
    Could you send me a phone number to discuss this further?
