Item Description...
Overview
In this first biography of Coretta Scott King, written by her friend Octavia Vivian, the reader meets a determined young girl who grew up in Alabama and worked her way through Antioch College only to discover that she was not allowed to teach in the white schools in Ohio. She pursued a musical career in Boston, where she met Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Montgomery bus boycott in 1955 brought Dr. King and his wife into national prominence. Since then the nation has seen the beauty and composure of Coretta Scott King as she has continued to speak and act on behalf of civil rights.

First published in 1970 by Fortress Press, this commemorative edition has been thoroughly updated, includes a black and white photo gallery, and is full of warmth and human interest, telling the story of Coretta Scott King from her childhood to her death in February 2006.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Found some inaccuracies  Mar 26, 2007
The book was fine, but I found a few inaccuracies on pages near the end of the piece. If the author was a family friend of Coretta Scott King and participated in the movement, she should have the decency to get her facts straight.

For example, on one of the pages, she mentioned that Medgar Evers was killed in 1965 and Malcolm X was killed in 1963. That's an incorrect statement. Evers was killed in 1963 and Malcolm was killed in 1965. Whoever was doing the editing, should have double-checked those facts.

In another instance, the author mentioned Ms. King's birthday on April 27, 1927. However, but at the time when Dr. King was killed the author mentioned that Coretta King was 39. That definitely was not true. Coretta King was 40 at the time when her husband was killed on April 4 a few weeks prior to her birthday on April 27.

I would have given the book five stars, but because of these inaccuracies, I give it 3 stars.
