R.I.P. Yolanda Denise King

We were shocked when we learned that Yolanda Denise King, the eldest daughter of late civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., left this planet at the too-young age of 51.

An actress and producer (see her IMDb page), Ms. King appeared in major motion pictures and hit television series. She ran Higher Ground Productions, involved in theatre, film and television productions.

One of her last interviews, given on National Public Radio earlier this year, can be listened to at the NPR web site.

She collapsed at the door of her brother Dexter’s house in Santa Monica, California. Cause of death is undetermined at this time.

It is sad to lose such a bright talent at such a young age... but comforting to know that she is with her mother and father... and her Lord.
