“I have a dream,” said Martin Luther King, Jr. advocating peace and equality back on August 28, 1963, during the famous March of Washington event. His words and actions in support of African-American’s civil rights in the US resonated throughout the world. He worked for the minorities and supported noble social causes until his assassination in 1968. King is regarded as one of the revolutionaries in the history of the world.

Honouring his greatness, the third Monday of January is celebrated as MLK day and is a U.S. federal holiday. However, as we reflect upon the recent Capitol Hills attack and the episodes of Black Lives Matter, the nation is still way behind King’s dreams.

A daughter’s tribute

Today as the world is celebrating the 92nd MLK day after its establishment in 1986. On this proud occasion, Bernice King, daughter of Martin Luther King, Jr. took to Twitter to share a couple of pictures of her father.

In one of the tweets, she shared a soulful picture of the family having dinner captioning it as,” Dinner with the Kings. Miss you.” Her mother Coretta Scott King is also seen in the picture.

As a tribute to her father, she tweeted a second picture of her in her father’s arms. The picture and the short message she shared with it can simply be described as beautiful.

Bernice King was only five years old when her father was assassinated. But growing up she too turned herself into a social activist. She is serving as an American Minister and is the CEO of Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change.
