Review:

“‘There is a Mrs. King. There is also Coretta. How one became detached from the other remains a mystery,’ King says. This book is distinctly Coretta’s story. . . particularly absorbing. . . .Living with terror is the threat that runs through ‘My Life’ . . . it is King's grounding in her husband's theology of peaceful resistance that enables her survival against excruciating odds.” ―Patricia J. Williams, The New York Times Book Review

“This memoir shows Coretta Scott King . . . as a leader in her own right, as a dedicated pacifist, as a persistent adherent to principles of nonviolence, as a gritty fighter for her husband’s legacy, as a mother . . . . A great and inspirational read . . . .This book put steel in my spine.”―Julianne Malveaux, Pittsburgh Courier

“Eloquent . . . inspirational . . . . King’s life’s work relayed in this rich retelling, provides a possible blueprint ― and a beacon.”―USA Today

“In My Life, My Love, My Legacy, legendary journalist Barbara Reynolds reveals never-before-told aspects of Mrs. King’s life . . . . We learn of the brilliant mind and courageous spirit behind the enigmatic figure.”―Essence

“The full life story of the civil rights activist and humanitarian is much more than just Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s wife. . . . It is her commitment to bettering the world that will keep her story alive in our hearts.”―Ebony.com

“The portrait that emerges here is of a woman of tremendous faith, resilience and pride . . . . By the time she died, she’d fought for a lifetime of causes.”―New York Post

“An important heroine in her own right, Coretta Scott King’s story is mesmerizing.”―Read it Forward

“This account of family, faith, and activism . . . is told so genuinely that it leaves the impression of having heard the words directly from the late activist. . . . Highly recommended.”―Library Journal (starred review)

“King was undoubtedly a singular woman, and readers will be struck by just how strongly her exceedingly compelling story resonates today. She was much more than just the woman behind the man, and now, in the most eloquent of language, she proves that truth once and for all to generations of readers who will embrace her all over again.”―Booklist (starred review)

“Gracious, elegant . . . . A touching memoir from an important figure in the civil rights movement.”―Kirkus Reviews

“A spiritual narrative with God as a frequent directing presence . . . . ‘In reading this memoir, I hope somehow you see Coretta,’ King confides in the introduction. One does.”―Publishers Weekly

Book Description Macmillan Audio. No binding. Book Condition: New. Audio CD. The life story of Coretta Scott Kingwife of Martin Luther King Jr. , founder of the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change, and singular twentieth-century American civil rights activistas told fully for the first time, toward the end of her life, to one of her closest friendsBorn in 1927 to daringly enterprising black parents in the Deep South, Coretta Scott had always felt called to a special purpose. One of the first black scholarship students recruited to Antioch College, a committed pacifist, and a civil rights activist, she was an avowed feminista graduate student determined to pursue her own careerwhen she met Martin Luther King Jr. , a Baptist minister insistent that his wife stay home with the children. But in love and devoted to shared Christian beliefs and racial justice goals, she married King, and events promptly thrust her into a maelstrom of history throughout which she was a strategic partner, a standard bearer, a marcher, a negotiator, and a crucial fundraiser in support of world-changing achievements. As a widow and single mother of four, while butting heads with the all-male African American leadership of the times, she championed gay rights and AIDS awareness, founded the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change, lobbied for fifteen years to help pass a bill establishing the US national holiday in honor of her slain husband, and was a powerful international presence, serving as a UN ambassador and playing a key role in Nelson Mandelas election. Corettas is a love story, a family saga, and the memoir of an independent-minded black woman in twentieth-century America, a brave leader who stood committed, proud, forgiving, nonviolent, and hopeful in the face of terrorism and violent hatred every single day of her life.
