After the death of her husband, Martin Luther King Jr., Coretta Scott King became an important civil rights activist in her own right. She founded the King Center, lobbied for the establishment of Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a national holiday, and spoke out against a variety of civil injustices. Coretta Scott King, Updated Edition is the story of a woman who faced terrible tragedy with great strength and dignity. This edition, which includes newly updated information in light of King's passing, is a tribute to the remarkable leader who inspired others by giving voice to her husband's message of justice and equality for all.
