" Wonderful background information on this remarkable woman. I had no idea how involved she actually was. " said.

" Borrowing it from Grandview Library via Columbus library on the publishing date " said.

" This was a really great book with lots of information. My son as well as I learned so much more about Coretta Scott King than we knew previously. " said.

" Such a strong woman. I can't even imagine how hard her life must have been. I didn't realize how persecuted her family was growing up, with her family home being burned down and then the mill her family owned. It must have been so hard for her to be home while her husband was constantly at risk and eventually murdered, and her having to take care of and raise their four children after his death. I loved learning about how influential music was to her and how she used it to further the movement. " said.

"This book is a great introduction to Coretta Scott King and the civil rights movement. The kind of book that should be read and discussed in elementary schools in honor of Martin Luther King Jr Day and Black Historic Month. The information is clear as precise and geared directly to young readers.
Coretta Scott King was a remarkable woman. Strong and selfless, she believed in the movement over her own personal safety. She believed in equality from a young age, which eventually led to her meeting and marrying MLK Jr. She was also a talented singer and used her skills to promote the civil rights movement, even after her husband's death. Coretta was a powerful figure, and a prominent woman in the fight for equality across the races.
" said.

"King was a phenomenally talented singer who liked to do things her own way. She was able to sing and contribute alongside her husband rather than just being a minister's wife. She used that ability to affect change and did it before, during, and after King's death. Doing things her own way meant wearing a blue dress instead of white when she married and standing in front of thousands of people days after her husband was murdered.

As always I find out fascinating facts that I didn't know-- she was in the house with her firstborn child when a bomb exploded-- the man actually called the home moments later and when she answered, he said that he had bombed the house and was more upset that he didn't kill anyone. And she stayed the course and pressed on.

It provides historical context as well as a snapshot of the woman who has a book award named after her and the wife of the Nobel Peace Prize winner.
" said.

" Brief bio of Coretta Scott King. While I understand that her life was defined by MLK, Jr., I wished they included more details like how there’s a book award in her honor or other projects she’s known for. " said.

" Wonderful background information on this remarkable woman. I had no idea how involved she actually was. " said.
