As you honor my father today, please honor my mother, as well. She was the architect of the King Legacy and founder of @TheKingCenter, which she founded less than three months after Daddy died. Without #CorettaScottKing, there would be no #MLKDay. #MLK #BelovedCommunity pic.twitter.com/cLvgTjeUwE

#MLKDay has long been a national day of service. As we celebrate the first without Congressman John Lewis, I’m thinking about his powerful call to remain hopeful about the future as we work to make our country—and our world—a better place. https://t.co/RpmKvrzjPo
