Today and every day, I want us all to remember my father as a kind, loving man who spent his life serving his community. Here’s a throwback to a tribute featuring @StevieWonder. #MLK pic.twitter.com/RLTsZjojCk— Martin Luther King III (@OfficialMLK3) January 15, 2021
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would have been 92 today. In his honor, let’s commit to fighting for the very best of who we are so that we can one day live up to the ideals of dignity and justice for all.— Kamala Harris (@SenKamalaHarris) January 15, 2021
If anyone had a right to question whether our democracy was worth redeeming, it was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Because in the face of billy clubs and lynchings, poll taxes and literacy tests, he never gave in to violence, never waved a traitorous flag or gave up on our country. pic.twitter.com/TCmbuiXkUa— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) January 18, 2021
“The problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power.”— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) January 18, 2021

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” Now, more than ever, we must listen to Dr. King’s words. #MLKDay pic.twitter.com/WYAzPzsC3b— Rep. Susie Lee (@RepSusieLee) January 18, 2021
And now, ‘Letter from Birmingham Jail.’ A masterpiece. “You deplore the demonstrations taking place in Birmingham. But your statement, I am sorry to say, fails to express a similar concern for the conditions that brought about the demonstrations.” #MLK https://t.co/WUvfiM55PX pic.twitter.com/fmrOrNcZds— The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center (@TheKingCenter) January 18, 2021
