The life story of Coretta Scott King, wife of Martin Luther King Jr. and singular twentieth-century American civil and human rights activist.
"Coretta is more relevant today than ever... a female who takes responsibility for creating something better in the time she has and the space she has to occupy: that is true greatness. And Coretta did that."Born in 1927 in the Deep South, Coretta Scott always felt called to a special purpose. After an awakening to political and social activism at college, Coretta went on to study at the New England Conservatory of Music, where she met Martin Luther King Jr. - the man who would one day become her husband. The union thrust Coretta into a maelstrom of history, throughout which her tireless fight for political and social justice established her as a champion of American civil rights.
