Coretta Scott King

My mom said something very interesting about the passing of Coretta Scott King. She said, I miss her more than I do Rosa Parks. Im not trying to diminish Rosa Parks legacy by mentioning this. Instead, Im trying to stress how important Coretta Scott King was.

I dont think its unreasonable to say that she carried on her husbands legacy and work much more than Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton did. She didnt seek the spotlight the way those two continue to do. She just kept fighting for the things she believed in...just as her husband did.

Quite simply, we need more people like Mrs. King.
