Why is Alveda King writing a cookbook? Who even knew she could cook?
In 2015, King, an evangelist and prolife civil rights activist, released King Rules, the second in her "King Family Legacy" books.
The first, Sons of Thunder: King Family Legacy, debuted to some controversy. Then last year, she released America Return to God, which details how her bloodline with Martin Luther King Jr., her uncle, manifests in the 21st century.
One reader writes: "This cookbook makes you feel like you're in the kitchen with Alveda King (daughter of A.D. King and Naomi King and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.) and her family. I'm not much of a cook but I'm going to try some of these recipes. I enjoyed the QR codes (for videos) that allow you to get to know the King Family like never before. My granddaughter enjoyed the videos as much, if not more, than I did."
In addition to publishing books, the creative evangelist writes and sings original music and produces films, children's books and artistic projects for her "flock of Millennial and post-Millennial mentees."
"Having been born into the bloodline of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., I take the role and responsibility of being a guardian to the King Family legacy very seriously," King says. "My parents, Rev. A. D. King and Mrs. Naomi Ruth Barber King, assisted by my grandparents, Rev. Martin Luther King Sr. and Mrs. Alberta Williams King, instilled in me the importance of putting God, family and community first in my lifetime agenda. Here in 2017, the perfect opportunity to combine our family legacy of faith, hope, love and hospitality with solutions to the critical problems of our day just seemed too good to pass up."
In GG's Cookbook, her new culinary offerings are being served up during the holidays; "just in time to bring love and reconciliation to the tables around the world."
