Don’t be ashamed if you’re tired. We shouldn’t have to fight voter suppression, contend for our postal service, petition for clean water, assert that Black Lives Matter, appeal for healthcare, work to eradicate poverty, mourn deaths from gun violence, protest police brutality...

Praying for people in freezing weather, including people who are house-less. Please share how we can help each other in the replies to this tweet.

On this day in 1965, Brother Malcolm was assassinated. What a tragic day for humanity. I’m praying today for his daughters, who I love dearly. #MalcolmX 

The great #NinaSimone  would have been celebrating 88 years on earth today. She wrote this song about my father. It moves me, still. Thank you for all that you’ve given us, Lady Nina.

Love doesn’t require that you choose one kind of inhumanity and one injustice to care about. Love is beyond religion, race and region.

“No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.” #MLK  #TrayvonMartin  February 5, 1995 - February 26, 2012

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

If you’re unbothered or mildly bothered by the 1st knee, but outraged by the 2nd, then, in my father’s words, you’re “more devoted to order than to justice.” And more passionate about an anthem that supposedly symbolizes freedom than you are about a Black man’s freedom to live.

There is no form of protest against racism that is acceptable to racists.

If only Daddy would have known about the power of #Pepsi .
