Right On! Digital Releases Exclusive Coverage Commemorating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, Holiday

NEW YORK - Jan. 18, 2019 - PRLog -- As Right On! Magazine continues to make positive strides  in the publishing community, this time as a digital platform, Cynthia Horner, Publisher/CEO of Right On! Digital,  announces that they will be releasing exclusive coverage commemorating the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday.

Beginning January 19, 2019, readers who visit the site will be able to scroll through  more than a dozen quotes and heartfelt testimonials from a variety of tastemakers and celebrities who recall the tremendous influence  the slain Civil Rights leader had on their lives. In addition, the site will feature an exclusive interview with Kurtis Blow, Chairman of the Universal Hip Hop Museum (uhhm.org). Blow, one of the pioneers of the rap music movement, shares a special connection with Right On! as he holds the honor of being the first rapper to appear on a cover of a nationally circulated newsstand magazine, which was Right On!.

This idea of celebrating Dr.  King in this way was conceived  by Right On! Digital's CEO/Editor-In-Chief Cynthia Horner who is excited about engaging their readers in what others had to say about the memorable African- American of our time. "I am very passionate about reminding our readers around the world about the significance of Dr. Martin Luther King  Jr. Dr. King was one of the most influential human beings in the world and his passionate, intellectual approach to ensuring that basic human rights are recognized must continue to live on in our hearts and in our history. Dr. King was revered by my parents' generation and it is up to us to make sure we light his flame, not just in January, but in every month of the year," Horner says. The full list of quotes and exclusive interview with Kurtis Blow will be available to view on Right On! Digital's website.

"The purpose of our tribute to Dr. King is to highlight his accomplishments and spread awareness to the remarkable achievements of this great leader. Kurtis Blow, one of the first hip hop superstars, actually produced a record back in 1985 which was called 'King Holiday' and executive-produced by Dexter King (Dr. Martin Luther King's son) which featured Run-DMC, Stacy Lattisaw, Whitney Houston, New Edition, El DeBarge and many others. Its accompanying video was paid for by the late recording artist Prince and we take readers behind the scenes of this occasion which was an amazing fete in the 80's," she concludes.
