Coretta Scott King, 1927-2006
Coretta Scott King was a great woman, and her passing is a great loss for America and the world.
A civil rights leader in her own right, she was a longtime activist for social equality for all races, genders, creeds and orientations, and she was active in anti-war causes. (In fact, she came out against the war in Vietnam two years before her husband, Martin Luther King, Jr.)
The Washington Post published a great obituary here.
Namaste, Mrs. King.
