CORETTA SCOTT KING, CIVIL RIGHTS ICON, DEAD AT 78

The widow of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Coretta Scott 
King, has died at the age of 78. King transformed the 
tragedy of her husband's assassination into an inspiring 
devotion enshrining his legacy of human rights and equality. 
She stood by her husband's side during the hardest days of 
the American civil rights movement, and after he was killed 
on April 4, 1968, she kept his dream alive while also 
raising their four children. She spent her days working to 
keep his ideology of equality for all people at the focus 
of the nation's agenda. In 1969, she opened the Martin 
Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, and 
made sure the center became involved with the issues she 
said bred violence - hunger, unemployment, voting rights 
and racism. King's last public appearance was Jan. 14 at a 
"Salute to Greatness" dinner in Atlanta, a fundraiser for 
the King Center. It also celebrated the 20th anniversary 
of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
