Today we honor the life and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a man who not only dreamed and changed the landscape of our culture, but continues to encourage us to do the same. Behind this influential civil rights leader was a very strong woman; his wife, Coretta Scott King.
Martin and Coretta were introduced by a friend, Mary Powell, in 1952, on the phone.
Coretta says about meeting Martin: "...he was looking for a wife. I wasn't looking for a husband, but he was a wonderful human being...I still resisted his overtures, but after he persisted, I had to pray about it...I had a dream, and in that dream, I was made to feel that I should allow myself to be open and stop fighting the relationship. That's what I did, and of course, the rest is history."
They were married on June 1953 with his father, Reverend King, officiating. They had four children, two boys and two girls and, like everyone else, had memories that are precious and times they would probably do differently. They rest peacefully next to each other in a grave at the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic site in Atlanta.
Their legacy lives on, and if you look back to how they were introduced, that's where the dream began.
