My home was hit with the same shockwave at the same time LQ.

:-(

This woman truely suffered the ultimate sacrifice for the cause. I think the women behind the men in the limelight are often overlooked. Some even were with their husbands at the time of their martyrdom.

Dr. Betty Shabazz watched her husband be slaughtered while sitting in the front row with her children.

Jackie Kennedy held her husband and was looking in his face when he was shot in the head.

Ethel Kennedy comforted her mortally wounded husband as he uttered his last words to her, "am I going to die?".
She gave it to him straight, "Yes dear, I am afraid so."

Myrlie Evans was startled one night by the sound of a single rifle shot in her driveway while waiting for her husband to return home.

I dare say that it would be easier to sacrfice yourself than your spouse. These women had to carry on in the aftermath, and for the life of me I can not comprehend what that must have been like.

I appreciated that Coretta Scott King not only fought for the rights of blacks, but expanded her struggle against social injustice to include women, gays, and the impoverished.

She knew all discrimination was interrelated, and did everything she could to stop it. Coretta Scott King thought for herself, fought the good fight, and will be missed.

Both Coretta and Martin realised ultimately that the real cause was a larger Human Rights issue. In my mind, that is when they crossed over from being activists into becoming Prophets.

While we mourn here, we can be comforted that Martin and Coretta are together again .

Another one of america's great Black female inspirations of american imagination and possibility has died.

Her physical frame has left us__'but not to get it twisted', her grand and great legacy will forever be in our soul to provide the force, the energy, and the power to our people for nourishment and regeneration.

Ms. King will always be respected, loved, admired, and honored for her unwavering devotion to her husband and his wonderful legacy. She is truly a "Phenonmenal Woman" and is definitely the First Lady of Black America. This news came as a shock to me. My first emotion was sadness. So I wept. Then I thought about how Ms. King always carried herself as a lady during the tumultuous Civil Rights Era, through years of lobbying the federal government to honor her husband's legacy and contribution to our fair country, and even now as the King Center face structural/financial issues. She is definitely the definition of grace under pressure. Not only is Ms. King a physical and stunning beauty; her inner strength and beauty magnifies the outer beauty. So I am no longer sad that Ms. King is no longer here in the flesh. Rather, I am grateful for the living, breathing example of a STRONG, BLACK WOMAN. Her spirit lives on forever.

I wept too, Shave. This fine, stoic, stately woman has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.....that photo of her with head uplifted at the funeral, with the black veil only slighly hiding her tears, while she comforted her youngest daughter Bernice.....I cant imagine the torment she experienced.

I wonder how she withstood the rift in her family in these later days, caused in large part by the debate about the fate of the King Center. It must have been like a stone in her heart......

I'm feeling the same kind of loss now as I did when I heard when Rosa Parks died. Another pioneer has passed and we are all the poorer for their passing. I hope we can all carry on some of their legacy in some form. Again, when people talk about these people as being Civil Rights leaders- I consider them more Human Rights leaders than anything else.

One more civil liberty great lost.

Hopefully the passing of Corretta Scott King and Rosa Parks will encourge people to read about the sacrifices of civil liberty legends and it will motivate them to act.

Martin King wrote the "I Have A Dream" speech for DETROIT.

It was so powerful he later adapted a longer version for the march on DC.

Berry Gordy owned the label that holds the copyrights to the DC speech sound recording. That was when Motown was in DETROIT.

K- now this is a DETROIT thread !

She lived a meaningful, long life.
She and her sojourners labored for the cause of freedom and liberty for all. They changed the face of Detroit and America, the World.
