Ashanti’s Grandpa Marched with Martin Luther King, Jr.

Ashanti: My grandfather actually marched with Martin Luther King, [Jr.] and there’s a picture of him that we have in our house. He’s holding his shoes up with holes in them and there’s a whole article. They spat on him. They beat him. And he marched… down Selma for us to have that opportunity, you know what I mean? So that has always been instilled in my entire family. As soon as everyone turned 18, grandpa, go out there and do what you need to do.

[The Real audience claps.]

About The Real

THE REAL is a daily, one-hour Emmy® nominated talk show on Fox Television Stations and in national syndication (check local listings), with a rebroadcast on cable network BET. Led by bold, diverse and outspoken hosts – Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley — these women reflect the home audience and unapologetically say what women are actually thinking. Their unique perspectives are brought to life through their candid conversations about topics ranging from their own personal lives to the news of the day to beauty, fashion and relationships. Emmy® nominated for Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment in its second season, THE REAL is unlike other talk shows, since each of the hosts are admittedly a “work in progress,” and fearlessly invites the viewers into their lives. Their fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion have turned the traditional talk show on its head. Produced by Telepictures Productions and distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, The Real originates from Los Angeles. Rachel Miskowiec (Good Morning America, Katie, The Tyra Banks Show, Judge Hatchett, The Ricki Lake Show) is Executive Producer.
