A generic update from the King Center

Statement from Dr. Bernice A. King, CEO of The King Center, about Coretta Scott King and the reading of her mother's letter by Senator Elizabeth Warren

The profound voice and leadership of Coretta Scott King, my mother, a global peace advocate and a human rights activist, still resonates today. Her letter regarding Senator Jeff Sessions, written 30 years ago, yet still prolific, should propel us all toward a commitment to eradicating all systemic injustices. Further, the letter should remind us that she was much more than the widow of a world leader who was a drum major for justice. She was, in her own right, before she married my father, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
