In a surprise appearance, Yolanda Renee King, Martin Luther King Jr.'s granddaughter, gave an emotional speech at March for our Lives.

"My grandfather had a dream that his four little children will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character," said 9-year-old eldest granddaughter of Martin Luther King Jr. said.

I have a dream that enough is enough," she continued. "And that this should be a gun-free world, period."

She then led the crowd in a chant, "Spread the word! Have you heard? All across the nation, we are going to be a great generation!"
