Abstract:

Even before her marriage to civil rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Coretta Scott King refused to bow to prejudice. She attended Antioch College-where she was one of only six black students at the time-and continued her musical education in Boston, where she met her husband. She juggled the responsibilities of motherhood and support for her husband, yet also managed to use her vocal talents in fundraising concerts to promote civil rights. When Dr. King was assassinated in 1968, Coretta Scott King became a prominent activist in her own right. She founded the King Center, lobbied for the establishment of Martin Luther King, Jr., Day as a national holiday, and spoke out against a variety of civil injustices. Since her death in 2006, her legacy has inspired the work of many other activists. Book jacket.
