Most of us remember Cree Summer best for her role in the "Cosby Show" spin-off, "A Different World."

But the young actress who played Winifred “Freddie” Brooks is all grown up, and the mom of two feisty mini-mes whom she has appropriately nicknamed "The Savages."

The famous quote is from MLK's last sermon, which took place in the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. on March 31, 1968

CELEBRATING MKL DAY

Cree's girls marked Martin Luther King Jr Day by reciting one of the Civil Rights Movement leader's most famous quotes.

The video Cree shared shows Brave, 8, and Hero, 6, facing the camera side by side and they forcefully chant:

“The time is always right to do what’s Right “

HERO AND BRAVE RECITE MLK

In the video, Brave steps forward with her arm up and shouts out the iconic phrase, while her tiny sister Hero, strikes a martial arts pose next to her, raises her own hand and joins in with "RIGHT!"

MLK'S LAST SERMON

The famous quote is from MLK's last sermon, which took place in the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. on March 31, 1968, four days before his assassination. Extolling them to be God's workers, MLK told his congregation:

"Without this hard work, time itself becomes an ally of the primitive forces of social stagnation. So we must help time and realize that the time is always ripe to do right.”

Kudos to Cree for teaching her young daughters our history, and for instilling in them the passion they so clearly demonstrate in the video.

The message they are remembering is as pertinent today as it was in the troubled times Martin Luther King Jr uttered it to a segregated world.

Those same words should be a touchstone for every day and in every facet of our lives.

The time is always right, so do what's right.
