Wife of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gets 10th year anniversary after her demise.
It is said that behind every successful man, there is a “strong” woman. Coretta Scott King was a perfect example of such a woman. She was the widow of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who was assassinated in 1968.
Coretta was a mother and a wife who never gave up on her activist husband and stood tirelessly behind him, nurturing the family alone in his absence.
A black man sees his family as a fortress, a passion to love and cherish.
Desired to be built on a strong relationship of mutual affection, men usually go for treasures like Coretta King who can uphold, build and support her husband at all times and in all places.
Coretta kept the legacies of her husband and immortalized him in the annals of history by successfully making the Congress to pass an act to celebrate Dr. King’s life after his death, which was first celebrated in 1986. Such is the desire of a black man!
Regrettably, the government tends to subjugate and conduct war on a black family whenever they air their view on crucial public issues such as human rights and racial injustice.
They are immediately confined and kept in custody with lots of inhumane treatments.
These were some of the challenges faced by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. but greatly encouraged by Coretta, a trusted pillar, wife and mother.
She is greatly remembered for her staunch advocacy of gun reform, feminist causes; rebuke of the then apartheid South Africa and advocated human rights endlessly.
January 30 marks the 10th year anniversary of her demise.
