The Rev. Bernice King, daughter of the late Coretta Scott and Martin Luther King Jr. took to her Twitter throughout the day of celebration in father's honor to shine a light on her mother's achievements and remind people of how America really treated the late Civil Rights leader. 

An activist and minister herself, Bernice often uses her social media to unpack King family myths, in particular, one that her father was heavily revered, when in fact, he was being extensively surveilled by the FBI and did not garner as much support from either side of the racial spectrum as many would like to believe today. 

The CEO of the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change has also used tweets to point out social justice flaws, such as the time she mocked the Pepsi ad featuring Kendall Jenner. 

"If only Daddy would have known about the power of #Pepsi," King's second-youngest child wrote in a 2017 tweet. 

However, on Jan. 17 and 18, her Twitter focused on reflecting her parent's legacy, for which she carries.


"Thinking of my mother. She persisted, even when several men from the movement advised her to stay home with her children. She founded @TheKingCenter 3 months after Daddy was assassinated and worked to realize King Holiday. And she was a global leader. #CorettaScottKing," she tweeted. 

Bernice also pointed out people have used her father to counter the Black Lives Matter movement. 

She also referenced the Jan. 6 domestic terrorism attacks and alleged plans of new attacks in Washington, D.C. 

She then reminded folks that her father was not the beloved person many reflect on him as today. 

Bernice also shared an old family photo of the Kings having dinner. 

Then there was this reminder for politicians to get the facts straight before posting their King tributes. 

She, of course, also encouraged someone to increase their level of Dr. King knowledge. 

She honored her late mother for being the architect behind her father's legacy. 

And she beamed with pride as others followed suit honoring Scott King as well.
