In US news and current events today, the son of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., Martin Luther King III, has continued his father’s legacy of tirelessly fighting for civil rights for Black and African Americans and other people of color. In this exclusive interview, he offers a message for young people who wish to carry on his father’s legacy for civil rights.

In the wake of the police killing of George Floyd and the subsequent George Floyd protests and Black Lives Matter protests, MLK III is campaigning for drastic police reform to combat systemic police racism, police violence, and police brutality against Black people. MLK Jr. was an icon taken from us far too soon, but his children are carrying on his legacy. Whether it comes in the form of defund the police, abolish the police, demilitarize the police, or sweeping policing reform, one thing is clear: we must change the way policing is done in the United States in order to truly ensure justice for all.
