Coretta Scott King was an American author, activist, civil rights leader, and the wife of Martin Luther King, Jr. She was a leader for the Civil rights movement in the 1960s and traveled throughout the world speaking out on behalf of racial and economic justice. 

King was also a singer who often incorporated music into her civil rights work. After her husband’s assassination in 1968, she founded the King Center, and she continued to be active in the civil rights movement as well as other social justice crusades. Hers was a life devoted to the highest values of human dignity in service to social change. (1927–2006)
