Martin Luther King III

Martin Luther King III was born on Oct. 23, 1957, in Montgomery, Ala. He was the only one of the King’s four siblings elected to public office. He was elected and has served on the Fulton County, Ga., Commission.er. His mother, Mrs. Coretta Scott King said Martin had deeply planted movement values. And he continues to demonstrate those values. In 1997, he was unanimously elected the fourth president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) the civil rights organization his father co-founded in 1957. AS president, Martin II helped establish new SCLC chapters, led protests to change the design of the Georgia state flag, which featured a large Confederate image. He has also held hearings and focused national attention on police brutality. In 2003, Martin III co-sponsored the 40th anniversary of the historic March on Washington with human rights organizations from across the country. Keeping his father’s dream alive is not a mere slogan with him. He conceptualizes it and in ways large and small continues to reshape and repackage its tenets of peace, justice and fairness for the next generation. He is married to Andrea Waters and the couple have an 11-year old daughter Yolanda Renee King.

“On Sept. 15, 1982, USA TODAY was founded on a commitment ‘to serve as a forum for better understanding and unity’ across the USA, and the editors of The Nation’s Newspaper pursue that goal in every edition.

“The daily Opinion and Inquiry pages of USA TODAY play a key role in the pursuit and so does Barbara Reynolds, editor of the Inquiry page and a member of the Opinion page editorial board.

“This book, And Still We Rise, represents a special segment of Ms. Reynold’s share in the USA TODAY commitment — a collection of her interviews with 50 black men and women whose achievements make them strong role models for everyone.

“The success stories of these 50 leaders provide the facts and some of the frustrations. They offer ideas and inspiration. They share words of warnings and examples of courage for all who care to follow these footsteps of achievement.

“USA TODAY is proud of the contributions to its pages by Ms. Reynolds and is pleased to share these selections of her work.”

—John C. Quinn– Editor, USA TODAY, Chief News Executive, Garnett Co, Inc.
