W. Calvin Anderson, M.Ed native of New Rochelle, NY and mentored by civil rights activists and celebrities, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee and Dr. Pearl Primus was privileged to meet Martin Luther King III at his home while attending a private fundraiser this week.
Calvin found Martin III to be a very gracious and down-to-earth person and the two had plenty of time to speak about 21st century violence reduction, student advocacy for public health concerns and their new ideas for 2016 initiatives.
Martin III is tirelessly engaged with leadership projects promoting U.S. creedal ideals and values and international social change and social reconstruction projects. Like his dad he is a respected leader promoting: human rights; violence reduction and prevention; improved community policing; civic responsibility: non violent dissent of public policy; solutions-based reforms and improvements in legal, community and economic development; clean water, green energy and environmental concerns and conscientious public health needs. Additionally, his wife of ten years, Arndrea Waters King is an avid humanitarian and supporter of high and low profiled causes. Arndrea currently serves as a board member for the Ethiopian aid organization appropriately called, HEAL-ETH . COM. The dynamic couple is well aware of the 1984 drought that claimed the lives of over one million Ethiopians and they, with Arndrea taking the lead have decisively organized progressive efforts to assist those in need in Ethiopia from their home and through an aggressive global social media drive.
The Helping Ethiopia Achieve Longevity (HEAL) organization is a nonprofit 501(C) (3) dedicated to helping Nutrition Plus Holistic Home Care (NPHHC) with a direct outreach model for its program beneficiaries in Ethiopia. NPHHC has been able to meet and exceed its goals which include: providing integrated home-based care for poor rural pastorlist women/girls; people living with HIV/AIDS and orphans and vulnerable children.
