We tend to forget that while Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an important human rights leader, he was also a father. One of my favorite stories about Dr. King is “Daddy”, written by his daughter Yolanda D. King.
It’s a heartwarming story where one sees a softer, lighter side of Dr. King. His daughter also shares some of the valuable lessons she learned from her father growing up.
This story is the perfect story to share with the kids on this important holiday. You can read it here.
