Overview

"This commemorative edition of the only biography of Coretta Scott King recounts in an authentic and personal way her momentous journey of triumph and tragedy, courage and determination, as told by her personal friend and fellow activist, Octavia Vivian." "Beginning at the end, we witness in Coretta the great and grand tribute offered by the world at Coretta Scott King's funeral. We then look back to the roots of her later deeds in the determined young girl who grew up in Alabama and worked her way through Antioch College, only to discover that she was not allowed to teach in the white schools of Ohio. It was as she pursued her musical career in Boston that she met Martin Luther King, Jr." The Montgomery bus boycott of 1955 brought Dr. King, his wife, and their young family into national prominence. Since then the nation and the world have seen the beauty and composure of Coretta Scott King as she assumed her role in the tumult of the Civil Rights Movement, stepped forth boldly and bravely when Dr. King was assassinated, and then set out to speak and act on her own on behalf of civil rights, economic justice, and the King legacy.
