The CEO of the King Center in Atlanta says she hopes to spur progress during this year’s observances of Martin Luther King Jr. Day by helping more Americans personalize the struggle for racial equity and harmony.

Bernice King is the daughter of the late civil rights icon. The weekend’s events include a civil rights training summit for youth and adults.
