Martin Luther King III Joins Impact Podcast for Special MLK Day Episode

·3-min read

Martin Luther King III is the featured guest for the latest episode of the Impact Podcast with John Shegerian. The show is hosted by Shegerian, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of ERI, the nation’s leading fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company.

As the oldest son of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mrs. Coretta Scott King, Martin Luther King III serves as an ambassador of his parents’ legacy of nonviolent social change. A graduate of his father's alma mater, Morehouse College, King has devoted his life to working in the non-profit sector to promote civil rights and global human rights and to eradicate the "triple evils" of racism, militarism and poverty his father identified as the scourges of humankind.

"It was tremendously humbling to have Martin on our show," said Shegerian. "After a particularly challenging 2020, who better to have on our special MLK Day show to discuss the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and bring our listeners a message of hope and inspiration for a better future. It was a great privilege to learn first-hand about Martin’s efforts, his beautiful children’s book and the positive impact he has been making throughout the world."

Every week, the Impact Podcast invites thought leaders to share with listeners first-hand accounts of how they are able to make the world a better place on a daily basis.
