For Lisa Young Alston, the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. is personal

Lisa Young Alston was 10 when “Uncle Martin” died. “As a child, my experience was not Dr. King; my experience was Uncle Martin,” she said. Alston is the middle daughter of Andrew Young, one of King’s closest confidants. She moved to the Kansas City area last summer. She’ll be in Washington, D.C., this weekend for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.
