Coretta’s Journey – The Life and Times of Coretta Scott King by Alice Faye Duncan Illusgrated by Gregory Christie delves into Coretta’s childhood, illustrating how her strong disposition to stand against racism led her down the path of activism. It talks about how she supported Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. but was so much more than just his wife and was an activist herself and how she continued on fighting for justice after MLK’s death.
Dr. Calyborne Carson, historian and founding director of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Research and Education Institute at Stanford University says, “Coretta’s Journey should be read by any young person who wants to understand Coretta Scott King’s essential contribution to her husband’s extraordinary life and enduring legacy. Her courage and dedication were evident both before and after she met Martin. She chose to be a wife and mother but was always Coretta.”
