A proclamation commemorating the life of Mrs. Coretta Scott King. Remember her as
one of the most graceful and influential civil rights leaders of our time. April 27,
1927 - January 30, 2006. A must read for all.

Mrs. Coretta Scott King buried at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Center in
Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Keeping in mind the U.S. Government is already improving
memorial sites around the United States of America and the world, should the King
Family keep control of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center in Atlanta or let the
United States Government take control? Write your blog/dairy in your book!

Mrs. Coretta Scott King is the widow of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr..
The couple met in Boston, where Coretta Scott was studying voice at the New England
Conservatory of Music; they were married on 18 June 1953.

The family moved to Montgomery, Alabama and then to Atlanta as Dr. King became a
civil rights leader and a prominent public figure. After Dr. King\'s assassination in
1968, Mrs. Coretta King established the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change in
Atlanta, Georgia, USA; she also supported the establishment of a national holiday in
honor of her husband, an idea which became law in 1986. Coretta and Martin Luther
King had four children: Yolanda (born 1955), Martin Luther III (b. 1957), Dexter (b.
1961), and Bernice (1963).

In 1969 the American Library Association (ALA) created the annual Coretta Scott King
award to honor children\'s book authors and illustrators of African descent.

Mrs. Coretta Scott King demonstrated unwavering dedication to the cause of social
justice that she and her husband held dear. She called upon America to stand up for
its founding ideals and carried that message across the world; now!
