Yolanda King, daughter of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., will appear on Lifetime's Any Day Now on Sunday, December 2, in an episode that chronicles the assassination of the elder King. (Coretta Scott King, Martin's widow and Yolanda's mother, continues to be a well-known ally and advocate of gay and lesbian causes.) Donzaleigh Abernathy--whose father, Ralph David Abernathy, was also a leading proponent of civil rights in the 1960s--is a regular on the show, which deals with an interracial friendship in the modern day, with flashbacks to the '60s. Any Day Now airs at 10 p.m. Eastern/Pacific. (Check local listings.)
