Here is my piece on Dr. King’s family that appears today in the London Free Press:

Coretta Scott King & her children

I am delighted that the London Free Press will be carrying my editorial on remembering Coretta Scott King and her children and recognizing the depths of their loss. The piece will appear tomorrow, the fiftieth anniversary of Dr. King’s murder. I will post it once it is available.

Remembering Coretta Scott King & Her Children

Next week is the 50th anniversary of the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
One of the things that I think that has been neglected over the years is how Coretta Scott King and her four children were impacted by his death. I am currently working on an editorial on this topic and I am hoping that the London Free Press -or someone else- will run it.
In the meantime, I recommend watching this segment from 60 Minutes (11:37-24:52). Just before Christmas 1968, Mike Wallace went to the King household to see how they were faring.
