King's youngest daughter, the Rev. Bernice King, his eldest son, Martin Luther King III, and his sister, Christine King Farris, all encouraged a new generation to pursue King's ideals in speeches Wednesday on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
Bernice King encouraged Americans to "say with a resounding voice no to chaos and yes to community," as King did years ago.
King's sister, Christine King Farris, spoke of "horrific violence" that she said had claimed the lives of young minorities such as slain teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida.
Still, she says, "we are not going to be defeated."
