HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE LATE GREAT BEAUTIFUL & AMAZING, MRS. CORETTA SCOTT KING! #internationalblackwomenshistorymonth Coretta Scott King was an author, activist, civil rights leader and the wife of Martin Luther King Jr. As an advocate for African-American equality, she was a leader for the civil rights movement in the 1960s. Coretta met her husband while attending graduate school in Boston. They both became increasingly active in the civil rights movement. ACTIVISM: Coretta played a prominent role in the years after her husband’s assassination in 1968 when she took on the leadership of the struggle for racial equality herself and became active in the Women’s Movement. She founded the King Center and sought to make his birthday a national holiday and she succeeded in 1984. Coretta supported LGBT rights and was anti-apartheid. She became friends with many politicians. Her phone conversation with John F. Kennedy during the 1960 presidential election has been credited by historians for mobilizing African-American voters. LEGACY: Coretta died in 2006 and her funeral was attended by over 10,000 people, including four of five living U.S. presidents. She was inducted into the Alabama Women’s Hall of Fame, the National Women’s Hall of Fame and was the 1st African American to lie in state at the Georgia State Capitol. Coretta has been referred to as “First Lady of the Civil Rights Movement”.

Get In There!
I am watching this right now. Like serious Business. This show is full of feelings.
Aging! Let’s talk about it. It is defined as : the process of becoming old. Being a seasoned woman myself. I’d like to define it as the process of getting wiser, the process of truly knowing who you are and not being afraid to walk in it. It comes to a point where you really don’t care about how other people see you, only how you see yourself and what value you bring to those around you.Life teaches you so much. We have an abundant amount of knowledge to impart on the younger generation. The term “old” places unspoken limits on a person. It causes others to see you in a negative light; therefore they miss out on valuable information. If you are Blessed to have a seasoned saint in your life. Cherish them, talk to them, explore the riches they have to share with you.Please don’t toss them aside as a nuisance or treat them like a child. It’s truly a disrespect to them and a disservice to yourself
You are missing out on a wealth of love, comfort, wisdom, humor and so much more. As it has been so often said: aging is a privilege denied to many.Just keep living and perhaps you will become a member of the club! This was just a little food for thought.
I love this Jeffrey. I am not saying didn’t like the original. I am just saying this one gives me that “whatever you need done” vibe. And I like a “whatever you need done” kinda person. I’m just saying. This first season was good. I am so impressed. I didn’t see it coming. Look forward to more.
