    Coretta Scott King, 1927-2006

    Coretta Scott King Will Be Sorely Missed

    Statement of Myrlie Evers-Williams, Chair Emeritus, NAACP Board of Directors

    “I was saddened to learn about the passing of my personal, very special friend, Coretta Scott King. She and I, along with Betty Shabazz, were members of a club that no one wants to join--the "widow of." We shared the challenges of raising our children without their fathers; we shared the challenges of bearing our husbands’ legacies with dignity; we shared the challenges of the ever-shifting civil rights movement. And, through it all, she maintained her graciousness while impacting the world's politics with her strength and sophisticated influence. And, now I share with the rest of the world in mourning the loss of such a wonderfully caring and spiritual woman. We shall sorely miss her.”

    (In 1998, Mrs. King presented Mrs. Evers-Williams with the NAACP Spingarn Medal)

    Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization. Its adult and youth members throughout the United States and the world are the premier advocates for civil rights in their communities, conducting voter mobilization and monitoring equal opportunity in the public and private sectors.
