KingCast says "Goodnight, Ms. King."

Today I am saddened to see Yolanda King join her mother in the land of the free. At 51, she was way too young for that. I met Ms. King and one of Malcolm X's daughters (I believe it was Atallah Shabazz) on a tour in the late 80's in Cincinnati, and was thoroughly impressed with their initiative and drive to come together to promote unity, understanding and commitment to Civil Rights. That's why I inserted a picture of "the meeting" between Malcolm X and Dr. King in the KingCast short films "Live Revolution" and "American Lawyer I."
