"Remembering Coretta Scott King"
You can celebrate her spirit
and help to carry on the legacy.
You may listen to an audio recording
of the Eulogy.
In addition to dealing with her husband's death, which left her alone with four young children, Mrs. King did not hesitate to pick up his mantle, marching, even before her husband was buried, at the head of the striking garbage workers that he had gone to Memphis to champion. She then went on to lead the effort for a national holiday in his honor and to found the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Non-Violent Social Change in Atlanta, dedicated both to scholarship and to activism, where Dr. King is buried.
