Coretta Scott King, 1968 39 items

Two months after Martin Luther King was assassinated, Post Magazine asked Bob Fitch to photograph his widow Coretta Scott King and family in their new life. Mrs. King was not only a mother of four energetic children, but also managed an enormous schedule of speaking engagements, answering letters, writing a book, organizing the Martin Luther King Jr. Institute, and lobbying for a national holiday honoring her slain husband. She also frequently appeared with Dr. Ralph Abernathy at SCLC events and rallies, including the Poor Peoples March on Washington.
