Yolanda King Dies

With sadness we learn of Yolanda King's death today. An actor, activist, speaker, and daughter of the Civil Rights Movement, Ms. King was a voice of hope and a symbol of empowerment. I once had the privilege of hearing her speak when I was in college. She was a powerful and dynamic speaker and she had a commanding presence. An inheritor of her parents' nobility and an accomplished leader in her own right, Yolanda King will be missed. "Let light perpetual shine upon her."
