She died peacefully in her sleep. She was 78 this woman that carried MLK's torch after he was slain. She married him in 1953 and I'm thinking she really didnt know what she was getting into. Perhaps she did, but in any case...she did him proud to the end. When MLK was asassinated in 1968, she was left to raise four children and fight for his causes he loved so dearly. She fought for over a decade to have his birthday declared a national holiday. She in 1969, founded the multimillion-dollar Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change.
If you believe in the here-after as I do..she's with him now and forever more.
