♪ [ cheers and applause >> our next guest has been continuing the work of her parents, dr. martin luther king jr. and coretta scott king, as the ceo of the king center she also co-wrote a new children's book called "it starts with me," which is available now at thekingcenter.org. please welcome, dr. bernice a. king. ♪ >> jimmy: ah, it's nice to see you again! thank you so much. >> yeah, it's good to see you as well. >> jimmy: it's nice to see you next time, we must do it in person, please >> yeah, definitely. >> jimmy: we just celebrated martin luther king, jr. day a few weeks ago. and i follow you on all the socials and you are a good follow i like your -- >> thank you so much >> jimmy: i love your messaging, but i love also -- you said on that day, you said, "please also remember my mother
on this day. because your mother had a lot to do with why we celebrate martin luther king, jr. day. >> well, i always say to people, you know, when my father was assassinated, he was one of the most hated persons in america and now he is one of the most loved persons in the world and some people would argue, "well, that's because he's no longer with us and to challenge people" and things of that nature but i would argue that that may be part of the reason, but it's also because coretta scott king dedicated her life after their life in the movement to institutionalizing his legacy in this country by creating and founding the martin luther king, jr. center for nonviolent social change, which i serve as the ceo of, and working for the holiday. and so many of the ways that we remember, recall dr. king today is because she was very strategic in the way in which she ensured that we would
remember him, recognize him, and have his teachings available. [ cheers and applause >> jimmy: you are exactly right. you've continued your parents' legacy with the king center, and you have a new program called nonviolence 365, which is now online. can you explain what that is nonviolence 365? >> yeah, it's actually an immersive online experience about 16 hours where people will learn about the foundation of nonviolence that my father developed and was influenced by many theologians and philosophers and his upbringing, how he used those in his campaign throughout the movement and they will learn about the principles and steps of nonviolence and then how to apply them in real life circumstances today. so they are exercises, they are quizzes, they are scenarios. there are extensive interviews with practitioners
those people who are instructors of nonviolence, veterans of the movement by the time somebody goes through this experience, they would have learned this nonviolent philosophy and methodology and how to use it to deal with not just conflict but how to engage and dismantle injustice and inequities, and how to take it forth practically into your home, your workplace, in your communities, and even in your schools. >> jimmy: yeah i have a photo here, again this is from instagram from instagram but this is --i love this, it says, "just a father taking care of his little girl. [ audience aws ] and that's you what do -- >> i was up something as you can see. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, you were doing something, yeah. >> i was waiting for him to finish >> jimmy: you were figuring something out. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: but i was going to ask you, how old do you think you are around here? >> i'm probably somewhere close to probably about 3 and a half
to 4 and believe it or not, and i didn't know this, when you zoom in, you probably can see it there, but when you zoom in, that's mahalia jackson in the background i never knew that. >> jimmy: oh, my gosh. >> and all these years, i just discovered that the other day when i relooked at the photo apparently she was at ebenezer church for something, and yeah, it was pretty cool >> jimmy: when you were -- when you were this young, when you were a kid, did you -- did you have any -- were you aware of what your parents did? >> i had not a clue. he was daddy, she was mommy, and we had a special game that we used to play. it was my game there was certain things he did with all of the siblings like putting us up on the fridge and we jump off into his arms but i had the kissing game where when he would come home off the road, there was a spot on the face that i would kiss him, related to each one of us so mine was on the forehead and my two brothers were on either cheek. my sister was off to the corner of the mouth and my mother smack dab in the middle. [ laughter ]
>> jimmy: yeah, yeah, yeah >> he would take me up in his arms and say, "hey, let's play the kissing game now where is --" yoki, which is was my sister's nickname sugar spots. he called them sugar spots i don't know what that meant, in the black community i don't know what that meant, but that's what we called them, sugar spots. it wasn't sweet, i can tell you that [ laughter ] maybe it was -- it was a sweet gesture, maybe that is what it was. >> jimmy: yeah that's so cute i love the book by the way you know i love children's books. and it's called "it starts with me," and all the profits go to the king center. can you talk about the book's message and also the beloved community? >> yeah, so we wrote this book on the heels of a campaign that were calling "be love. with all of the polarization and the divisiveness and the vitriol in our nation, we wanted to inject love as the power to change and transform our society. because my father said that "power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and just at it's best is love correcting everything that stands against love."
so as we were going through this whole process and getting people to join us and taking a a pledge and they can go there even now and take that pledge as adults. we wanted to bring in children so we decided to do this children's book. >> jimmy: yeah >> and the little character's name is amora, because you know in french amour means love and so amora is encouraging her friends to be love, to open up their hearts and open up their minds to let love guide their words, especially with kids, their actions and their thoughts and to be a part of creating the beloved community and teaching them that love is very powerful, transformative, that it's kind, that it fights against hate, that it stands up for justice, so many other things and so the beloved community is really about creating a society that's based in justice and equity and where people are treated with respect and dignity and where conflicts are resolved in a peaceful manner. because there is conflict in
the beloved community, but you're committed to the dignity of every person and working it out, and you're also committed to ensuring that there's justice and equity for everyone and so we wanted children a part of that journey and that's why we wrote this book. >> jimmy: i love it. [ cheers and applause please don't stop, please don't stop you are awesome. please don't stop. dr. bernice a. king! for more information on "it starts with me" and non-violence 365, go to thekingcenter.org. we'll be right back everybody with more "tonight show. ♪ [ cheers and applause
♪ [ cheers and applause >> jimmy: our next guest can be seen at the new york comedy cellar march 4th through the 6th. making his "tonight show" debut, please welcome the very funny, eric neumann, everybody [ cheers and applause ♪ >> thank you thank you so much. how are we feeling, guys we good? [ cheers and applause oh oh, amazing. i'm so happy to be here. actually, my mom is a very overprotective mom, so to be honest, i'm happy to be anywhere she is not. [ laughter ] she is -- she is super overprotective she'll like -- she'll text me when i'm out at night. she'll be like "call me as soon as you leave the bar." [ laughter ] "i'm worried someone's going to follow you home. [ laughter ] i'm like, "mom, the whole point of me going out was to get someone to follow me home.
[ laughter ] she'll call me in the middle of the night to make sure i got home okay, but if i don't answer the phone because i'm busy, she'll call one of my best friends looking for me. [ laughter ] i'm 34, that's unacceptable. [ laughter ] so finally, i sat her down i'm like, "mom, you have to stop calling my friends at 4:00 a.m you are going to give them the wrong impression." [ light laughter ] right? because my friends are wasted at 4:00 a.m. i don't trust them talking to my mom on the phone at all [ laughter ] i always see this scenario playing out in my head, all right? my mom calls my best friend, joe, at 4:00 a.m she's like, "hey, joe, is eric with you?" joe is like, "no, i'm all alone. do you want to come over?" [ laughter ] it's my worst nightmare. literally, my worst nightmare. i just found out my mom and i have the same therapist. [ light laughter ] which is weird it's weird but it's fine because he is sworn to confidentiality like, he can't even legally admit that he knows who my mom is [ light laughter ] so sometimes, i like to test him to see how professional he is
the other day, i was like, "oh, my mom is so overbearing, man. i can't take it. she's in therapy to get help, but says her therapist is an unhelpful moron. [ laughter ] can't even believe he has a degree really. [ light laughter ] he's like, "oh, that's weird, because i have a patient who's son is a real schmuck. [ laughter ] i'm like, "all right, touche sir. you won that battle. i've gotten my heart broken so many times so many times. i remember i dated this girl briefly in fifth grade [ laughter ] and i haven't seen her since fifth grade. last week, i ran into her on the street and she goes, "hey, eric, remember when i broke up with you in fifth grade? because the nurse pulled you out of the classroom for having lice." [ laughter ] i'm, like, you mean the most devastating moment of my entire life [ laughter ] yeah, i vaguely recall that. i remember i was so devastated, i came back into the classroom and some kid next to me was like, "eric, why do you look so
sad? i'm like, "because nadia just dumped me and now i'm all alone. and i swear he pointed at my head and he's like, "no, you're not. [ laughter and applause my mom really wants me to settle done and have kids. you know, my younger brother has a 2-year-old daughter now, and everybody is like, "now that your brother has a kid, your mom is going to put less pressure on you to have kids." it's not true. she doesn't put less pressure on me, she's just changed her approach that's all like, the other day, i met up with my mom and my niece and my niece was crying i was like, "mom, why is she crying?" and she goes, "i think it's because she doesn't have a a cousin." [ laughter ] she's a genius she is brilliant, that woman i take my niece to go get coffee every morning i take her to the coffee shop. that's our routine and i love doing it for two reasons. one, she is so cute. and two, it is so easy to pick up women [ laughter ] but only if i make it very clear that she is not my daughter so the other day, we were at the coffee shop.
some beautiful girl passed by, looked at my niece, and i was like, "can you say uncle?" [ laughter ] "can you say single uncle? [ laughter and applause "who's your single uncle, huh? who is your single uncle who will definitely be faithful this time around because he learned his lesson?" [ laughter ] even my friends are starting to worry about me like, the other day, my friend goes, "hey, eric, you have to meet a girl before you become rich because then you'll know she really loves you." he goes, "look at lebron james." that was the example he used lebron james [ laughter ] he goes, "lebron met his wife in high school, right? so you know she really loves him. she dated him before he was lebron james i'm like, "yeah, but it's not like there weren't signs." [ laughter ] "becky, you'll never guess who just asked me out. you know that guy, lebron, who is 6'9", and averages 85 points per game
[ laughter ] yeah, the one who was on the cover of 'sports illustrated' at 14 years old. [ laughter ] yeah, i think i'm going to roll the dice on him. [ laughter ] i know it's a long shot. i'm going to go for it i have no idea what he wants to do for his career. i know for fun he likes to hop over school buses. but for a career, who knows. you guys have been amazing i'm eric neumann thank you so much everybody.
