With Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on the horizon, I thought it was appropriate to attempt finishing a book related to MLK Jr. or the nonviolence movement before the holiday. Audible had My Life, My Love, My Legacy by Coretta Scott King as told to the Rev. Dr. Barbara Reynolds. Mrs. King worked with Rev. Reynolds for thirty years to put the book together, and the book was published posthumously. The New York Times reviewed the book just before its release. It is incredible how blunt Coretta Scott King is about the relationship with her husband Martin Luther King, Jr. It is also amazing how much suffering and tragedy she endured throughout her life and was able to still have a positive outlook, and still continue practicing nonviolence. What would be great is if all were able to learn and practice nonviolence as she and her husband had.
