“I must remind you that starving a child is violence. Suppressing a culture is violence. Neglecting school children is violence. Punishing a mother and her family is violence. Discrimination against a working man is violence. Ghetto housing is violence. Ignoring medical need is violence. Contempt for poverty is violence." - Coretta Scott King
Famed author, Civil Rights trailblazer and widow of Martin Luther King Jr., Coretta Scott King passed on this day, January 30th, eight years ago in 2006, at the age of 78. May she rest in power and may her legacy and contributions never be forgotten.
