This week marked the 49th anniversary of the assassination of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., and the nation found a way to commemorate the occasion. In Chicago, they marched for better wages, much as King marched for worker rights at the time he died. In Miami, the “I Have a Dream” broadway play hit the stage and captivated the audience. In New York, King’s son, Martin III discussed how young people can change the world.

Around the world, neo-pop group Lion Babe took the stage at  the Billboard Tokyo during ‘Michael Kors The Walk Celebration. Lead singer Jillian Hervey is one of the new faces of Kors latest collection.

Hip-hop stepped up to the plate as well as Queen Latifah spoke at the Eighth Annual Women In The World Summit at Lincoln Center; and Ice Cube speaks at a dinner at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, which once denounced him as an anti-semite.

Finally in a moment of #BlackBoyJoy, a set of quadruplet brothers found out they each were accepted to Harvard, Yale and a host of other Ivy League and top schools across the country. “It wasn’t so much about the prestige or so much about the name as it was — it was important that we each find a school where we think that we’ll thrive and where we think that we’ll contribute,” said Aaron Wade one fourth of the brilliant Brothers Wade.
