My mother’s 95th birthday is Wednesday, April 27th. She was so much more than #MLK ’s wife and widow. Global leader, peace advocate, human rights activist, founder of @TheKingCenter  (less than 3 months after my father was assassinated). Will you join me in #CelebratingCoretta ?

It is terribly inhumane to block pathways out of poverty because you didn’t need those pathways.

The work is here. The work is offline. The work is online. The work is internal. The work is external. The work is in the streets. The work is in C-suites. The work is in advocacy. The work is in art. The work is local. The work is global. The work is wherever we are.

I want to be sure you know about #TigrayFamine  #TigrayGenocide . Did you know? Do your connections/followers know? #Tigray  matters. @POTUS  @SenSchumer  @SpeakerPelosi  @VP 

I have thoughts and prayers, but as we mourn the people slaughtered in Buffalo, we must be compelled to compassionate action regarding discourse, education, media, and gun policies. Neither ignoring or glorifying white supremacist ideology will alleviate its devastating results.

It is in our hands [in our legislative halls, at ballot boxes, in corporate suites & at our dinner tables & church altars] to stop our children from being slaughtered in schools & our elders from being gunned down in grocery stores. Lead, @GOPLeader  @LeaderMcConnell .

Don’t act like everyone loved my father. He was assassinated. A 1967 poll reflected that he was one of the most hated men in America. Most hated. Many who quote him now and evoke him to deter justice today would likely hate, and may already hate, the authentic King. #MLK .

Racism is not a difference of opinion.

Praying for Breonna’s mother and family. Because they knew and loved her before her name became a hashtag.

Today is #BreonnaTaylor ’s birthday. #SayHerName . Think of and pray for those closest to her. Dedicate time to work for #JusticeforBreonnaTaylor . Here’s how. RT. Share.

Many who tweeted about my father today would have hated him 50 years ago. He was for the eradication of poverty and caring for poor people. No human was an alien to him because he believed this is a World House. And he asserted that inequality in healthcare is most inhumane. #MLK
