CORETTA SCOTT KING - "I came to the realization that we had been thrust into the forefront of a movement to liberate oppressed people, not only in Montgomery but also throughout our country, & this movement had worldwide implications. I felt blessed to have been called to be a part of such a noble and historic cause."

In my opinion Coretta Scott King was our country's greatest hero. She fought tirelessly her whole life for the rights of black and gay Americans. She was a class act and this world needs A LOT more people like her.
