Overview

Coretta Scott King—Fighter for Justice is the fascinating story of the woman who dedicated her life to supporting her husband in his valiant struggle for racial equality. With compelling insight, the author traces the development of a sensitive young girl intent on a musical career into the strong and selfless individual who plays a major role in the history of the Civil Rights Movement.
Ruth Turk takes us behind the scenes, revealing the trials and tribulations of her subject in an unbiased, fast moving style which is factual and convincing. The book never becomes overwhelming, but is liberally sprinkled with important names, events, and places that cover decades from the 20’s to the present. The result is a memorable portrait of a woman and a vital part of history which is still part of the American scene.
The reader will finish this book with an acute awareness of one who must be remembered, just not in the shadow of her husband, but as a meaningful person in her own right. No history of the Civil Right Movement can be complete without this fitting tribute to the woman who kept the Dream alive at considerable expense to her own secret dreams. This is a biography you will want to read more than once.
