MLK #SocialSnapshot, Celebrating a Legacy

During an eventful week for the United States, New York Liberty players took to their social media accounts to pay tribute to the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and share some memories from the Presidency of Barack Obama.

Swin Cash shared a photo of her visit to the National Civil Rights Museum at the Loraine Motel this fall, where she received the Freedom Award, and Carolyn Swords visited the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Overseas, Rebecca Allen is celebrating a big win for Good Angels in EuroCup tournament play, and Amanda Zahui B is dreaming of befriending Steph Curry, while having fun with her teammates in Orenburg.

#farwellobama THIS:Last year was the first time my husband @stevecanal and I attended the Whitehouse together. I wanted to share this moment because it shows a side of our President I've always respected! The top picture is when the President first joined us on the basketball court. He was speaking to Shaq and I briefly and asked how we were doing (of course Shaq tried it, talking about he beat me at 3's but me never finished 😑lol) I told the President since I last saw him I was married now. He congratulated me and asked where my husband was so I pointed over on the side. The President waved and said well I have to meet this young man. As Shaq and I walked with him around the court, he graciously took pictures with Shaq's family and as he said he would, he met my husband. He shared some words of encouragement for our marriage & of course a joke or two for laughs. With everything that was going on for him to take that time meant a lot to me. As an former athlete the last 8 years this administration embraced our community, challenged us to be leaders/role models and partnered with leagues like @nba @wnba to use sports to help our youth! My prayer is that we as athletes don't forget to continue the work.. GOD Bless our 1st family and GOD Bless our country❤️ "Stand on faith and move on Hope" SC
