MLK III Says Lebron & Kaepernick Are The New Faces Of Black Leadership


Martin Luther King, Jr. left some big shoes to fill when it came to civil rights and peaceful protests, but Lebron James and Colin Kaepernick could do him justice, according to his son, MLK III.

We got MLK III at LAX Monday where he told us he thought Lebron and Colin were the closest thing to modern day black leadership ... obviously referring to Kaepernick famously taking a knee during the National Anthem and LeBron promoting social activism at this year's ESPYs.

MLK III didn't stop there ... he also mentioned several other candidates with star power, including a singer. HINT: it's a female.
