Porsha Williams Is "in Class" to Continue Her Work for Social Change and Justice
The RHOA cast member is continuing her work in the Black Lives Matter movement.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Porsha Williams' work as an activist in the Black Lives Matter movement is far from over. She recently posted a photo of herself, captioning it, "In class learning 6 Steps of Kingian Nonviolence."
The caption also mentioned the names of several victims of police brutality and racial injustice with the hashtags: "#JusticeForBreonnaTaylor," "#JusticeforElijahMcClain," "#JusticeForSecorieaTurner," "#JusticeForDavidMcatee," and "#JusticeForAll."
Porsha is most likely referring to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s philosophy as detailed on The King Center's website. The "Six Principles of Nonviolence" were included in King's book, Stride Toward Freedom (released in 1958), which detailed the Montgomery Bus Boycott which took place in 1955 and the following year in 1956.
The King Center also details the "Six Steps for Nonviolent Social Change," which include information gathering, education, personal commitment, discussion and negotiation, direct action, and reconciliation.
Porsha has a deep connection to Dr. King's legacy. Her late grandfather, Rev. Hosea Williams, worked alongside King as a fellow pioneer during the Civil Rights Movement.
She spoke about his legacy on Amplify Our Voices: An Open Dialogue on Being Black in America and on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
