    Grandchild’s name is Yolanda, named after her aunt who passed away last year. It is Bernice King that is in the photo with her brother and sister-in-law, and baby niece.

    Congrats to the family!

    I am not surprised that both brothers started breathing and living more after the death of their mom. I live in Atl and I ofter heard horror stories about how no woman was good enough in the eyes of their mother. Just like JFK jr. When his mom past, he quit being an attorney. He never wanted to be one but that was the profession his mom pushed him into. It took 3 times for him to pass the bar. I don’t think it was a surprise that he started doing what he wanted after she was gone. I could not imagine the pressures being a child of a Kennedy or King. I betcha it was harder on those girls. I would like to have been a fly on the wall going over to meet Coretta for the 1st time.

    God Bless that child

    Wow the first grandchild. Are you sure? None of Kings children had kids before this?

    This is beautiful! If you could have heard Martin, III speak about it, there was nothing but joy emanating from his voice and his body language.

    The King children are getting old… it’s about time one of them had a baby. They should have been spitting them out yearly to keep the King legacy going strong.

    Why does someone discriminate black? I don’t think love is just belongs to white. I’m a black and but my hubby is white. We met at +((((+ I n t i m a t e m i n g l e. c o m +))))+which tell us love is color blind. Our love proved this. I hope each one will not discriminate blacks.

    I would like to thank +((((+ I n t i m a t e m i n g l e. c o m +)))+for bringing a very close friend from 17 years ago. I never had the chance to express how I really felt. I had always watched her from afar, but due to Mutual friends it wouldn’t be right, but now we are planning to meet for new years eve. We have exchanged dozens of e-mails and phone calls. She now knows how I felt for her 17 years ago, And our future is as bright as ever.
