Coretta Scott King

Coretta Scott King

Tonight the nation mourns the loss of another giant of Civil and Human Rights.  Coretta Scott King was an indomitable force carrying forward the message and purpose of her husband Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. after the tragedy of his assassination in 1968.  She did not let the horror and evil of that moment destroy her life and sense of destiny.  Instead, within days she, herself, was leading a march, and her role in the movement for civil rights and justice for all was pivotal in the late 1960’s and 1970’s.

I invite everyone in the Trinity community to remember Mrs. King and to pray for the King family.  You are welcome to leave messages of remembrance on the bulletin board in the Well.  As we did with the earlier memorial to Rosa Parks, and the messages on Martin Luther King’s Birthday, we are saving the messages and creating a more permanent display with the comments from the community.  I think it’s very important for the future generations of Trinity students to see what this generation thought and felt about the heritage and leadership of these great figures in our history.

Please join me in extending Trinity’s condolences to the King family, and in remembering her life and work with thanksgiving.

Patricia A. McGuire, President, Trinity, 125 Michigan Ave. NE, Washington, DC 20017
