The life story of Coretta Scott King—wife of Martin Luther King Jr., founder of the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change, and singular twentieth-century American civil rights activist—as told fully for the first time Born in 1927 to daringly enterprising black parents in the Deep South, Coretta Scott had always felt called to a special purpose. One of the first black scholarship students recruited to Antioch College, a committed pacifist, and a civil rights activist, she was an avowed feminist—a graduate student determined to pursue her own career—when she met Martin Luther King Jr., a Baptist minister insistent that his wife stay home with the children. But in love and devoted to shared Christian beliefs and racial justice goals, she married King, and events promptly thrust her into a maelstrom of history throughout which she was a strategic partner, a standard bearer, a marcher, a negotiator, and a crucial fundraiser in support of world-changing achievements. As a widow and single mother of four, while butting heads with the all-male African American leadership of the times, she championed gay rights and AIDS awareness, founded the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change, lobbied for fifteen years to help pass a bill establishing the US national holiday in honor of her slain husband, and was a powerful international presence, serving as a UN ambassador and playing a key role in Nelson Mandela's election. Coretta’s is a love story, a family saga, and the memoir of an independent-minded black woman in twentieth-century America, a brave leader who stood committed, proud, forgiving, nonviolent, and hopeful in the face of terrorism and violent hatred every single day of her life.

Omrunu insanlik icin, dunyayi daha yasanilabilir, daha adaletli bir yer haline getirmek icin feda etmis, daha 40 yasindayken suikaste kurban gitmis, dunya liderleri arasinde en cok sevdigim ve saygi duydugum Saygi deger Martin Luther King’in sevgili esi Coretta Scott King.Bir kadin dusunun cocuklari, kocasi, kendisi her an olumle burun buruna ama insanlik icin yilmadan, her daim kocasinin yaninda. Hayat arkadasini bu ugurda feda ettikten sonra da 4 cocuguyla genc yasinda tek basina yine davasinin arkasinda. Kitabin cogu bolumunu, gozlerim dolu dolu okudum. Hele ki her seyehat oncesi esine canli cicek gonderen Martin Luther King’in olecegini hissettigi zaman kalici olsun diye yapay cicek gondermesi ve gercekten de o cicegin gonderdigi son cicek oldugu bolum....Martin Luther King’in olduruldugu bolumden sonrasi kitabi uc gun elime alamadim. Su dunyadan Hitler gectigi gibi, boyle guzel insanlar da gecmis. Boyle bir omur herkese nasip olmaz. Iyi insan kime denir ve nasil olunur, gormek isteyen herkese bu kitabi okumalarini tavsiye ederim. Bu kitabi bana hediye ederek okumama vesile olan sevgili esime de cok tesekkur ederim.
