Description: COLLECTIBLE SIGNATURE On 3 1/2 high X 7 inch wide Card Of Noted American Civil Rights Advocate Coretta Scott King. Approximately 3 1/2 inch high by 7 inch wide card signed by noted American author, activist, civil rights leader, and the wife of Martin Luther King, Jr., Coretta Scott King. Boldly signed in ink: "CORETTA SCOTT KING"
"Coretta Scott (1927-2006) married Martin Luther King, Jr. on June 18, 1953, little knowing that he was soon to make his mark among the leaders of the nation. Reverend Martin Luther King, Sr. officiated at the marriage of his son, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Coretta Scott (1927-2006) near her home in Marion, Alabama. King first became involved in Civil Rights during the Montgomery (Alabama) Transit Boycott (1955-1956), which made him a national hero and the unprecedented leader of the modern Civil Rights Movement. Mrs. King, an ardent supporter of her husband's work, endured threats and bombings before the assassination of her husband in Memphis on April 4, 1968. After his death, she became a dynamic Civil Rights leader and crusader for peace in her own right, leading the 20th anniversary March on Washington (1983) and speaking out for the rights of Blacks in America and in South Africa. In 1969, Mrs. King, the mother of four children, founded the Atlanta-based Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, which carries on Dr. King's teachings of nonviolent social protest."
