Coretta Scott King

Coretta Scott King, the wife of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who picked up his mantle to become a civil rights leader in her own right, died last night, five months after suffering a serious stroke and heart attack. She was 78 years old.

Rest in peace, Mrs. King; Rosa Parks saved a seat for you in the front of the bus to heaven.
