Watch: Yolanda Renee King, MLK’s granddaughter, talks with Rev Al Sharpton about her activism

Yolanda Renee King joins her “Uncle Al” on his MSNBC show

The best thing of the weekend was this exchange. When Yolanda Renee King said “Hi Uncle Al, thank you for having me on your show,” my heart swelled. Reverend Al Sharpton is an emotionally accessible man and journalist, but this was a new level of how generations fuel each other. Watching both of them smile as they talked about her work, her opinions on current events, and just generally centering her was encouraging.

She spoke quite eloquently about inspiring and motivating young people to take up the mantle of activism, including some of the real barriers youth face.
