This is a posthumous memoir of Coretta Scott King (1927-2006). Apparently, King narrated the memoir to Rev. Barbara Reynolds in 2006 along with some interviews. Reynolds was a longtime friend of King. The book covers her life from birth to death.
King tells of the racial hatred she had to endure growing up in Alabama, the whites burning her family home when she was a child, and racial discrimination throughout most of her life. She tells of her life with MLK, the bombing of their home on January 30, 1956 with her and her children inside. She also tells of MLK’s assassination and her years after his death. King also tells of her aspiration for a musical career and her scholarship to the New England Conservatory of Music. The book reveals Coretta as a person out from the shadows of her famous husband.
Coretta Scott King was the first African-American to lie in State in the Georgia State Capitol upon her death.
I enjoyed reading the memoir of a most remarkable woman.
LaVoy and Rashad did a good job narrating the book. January LaVoy is a Broadway actor, voice-over artist and audiobook narrator. Phylicia Rashad is and actress and audiobook narrator.

This book educated me so much. I could not put it down. I felt as if I really new each family member and other characters. I learned so much about Mrs. King and Dr. Kings' childhood, marriage, family and public life. I truly believe that the King family was called by God.
I am extremely happy that I purchased this book through audible. Listening, allowed me to really HEAR!
