The Love Story of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King

The love story of Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King unfolded in the vibrant city of Boston, far from the epicenter of the Civil Rights Movement that would later define their lives. Their marriage in 1953 marked the beginning of a remarkable partnership, one that transcended the boundaries of personal love to encompass a shared commitment to a better world. As Martin led the fight for equality, Coretta became a steadfast pillar of support, both at home raising their four children and alongside him on the front lines of the movement. Their love story, despite the rumors and threats, continues to inspire generations with its potent message of love, resilience, and unwavering dedication to justice.
