Martin Luther King Jr.’s granddaughter speaks at March for Our Lives

“Spread the word, have you heard, all across the nation, we are going to be a great generation!”

Martin Luther King Jr.’s granddaughter, Yolanda Renee King, spoke at Washington, D.C.’s March for Our Lives rally yesterday, saying she has a dream that “enough is enough.”

“My grandfather had a dream that his four little children would not be judged by the color of their skin, but the content of their character,” King said. “I have a dream that enough is enough and this should be a gun free world, period.”

She stood beside Jaclyn Corin, a 17-year-old student who survived the Valentine’s Day shooting at her Florida high school.

King went on to chant: “Spread the word, have you heard, all across the nation, we are going to be a great generation!”
