Is Your Purpose Tied To Continuing A Legacy? (w/ Dr. Bernice King‪)‬ Stay A While

    • Society & Culture

“How do we transform our society for the better? Because we can't do it in ways that are destructive. Because at the end of the day, we're all connected now and interconnected. And we've got to find a way to coexist in this world and ensure that there is justice and equity, fairness and dignity and respect.” - Dr. Bernice King

Welcome to Stay a While with Tommi Vincent! There is no doubt that we stand on the shoulders of those who’ve come before us. And we reap the benefits of the callings they chose to answer. Dr. Bernice A. King joins the Stay A While Podcast today to discuss not only the beauty of the legacies that have changed entire world systems but also the beauty and importance of placing our own bricks to continue those heritages. Dr. King shares beautiful moments with her mother, the late Coretta Scott King, and how her mother’s perseverance helped her to thrive in not one, but two male-dominated vocations. She also gives a word on what it means to be the daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the ways in which her calling and purpose are inextricably bound to what came before her.


Dr. Bernice A. King is a global thought leader, strategist, solutionist, orator, peace advocate, and CEO of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center For Nonviolent Social Change (The King Center), which was founded by her mother as the official living memorial to the life, work, and legacy of her father. In this position, Bernice continues to advance her parents’ legacy of nonviolent social change through policy, advocacy, research, as well as education & training through the Kingian philosophy of nonviolence, which she re-branded Nonviolence365® (NV365®). She is a licensed attorney and member of the State Bar of Georgia; a certified Mediator with the State of Georgia; a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated, the International Women’s Forum (IWF), the National Council of Negro Women; a Board member of the National Black Bank Foundation as well as Faith and Prejudice.

Dr. King is an innovative, inspirational, and transformational leader. She is dedicated to ensuring that her parents’ legacy and teachings, The King Center, as well as the work of creating the Beloved Community, with Nonviolence365® as the pathway, are introduced to new generations of influencers.

Key Quotes
“It's so important for us to keep people in our life that are more seasoned than us. Because there are some things about learning how to be a good human that comes along with being able to glean from the wisdom of people who've lived life longer than you have.” - Tommi Vincent

“If there's somebody who's trying to gain the whole world and yet lose their soul, you know, I try to get them back to center them, understand it's okay to have a healthy self-centered concern, you know, to take care of yourself… Don't be a public success and a private failure.” - Dr. Bernice A. King

“Love is never going to be outdistanced or outwon. In the end, it's going to prevail.” - Dr. Bernice King
