I know I've said before that I was living in Memphis when Dr. King died. I was involved with the civil rights movement of the 60's and early 70's. Mostly behind the scenes licking stamps for CORE but at least doing something.
I posted her biography from the New York Times on isamericaburning and I won't repeat it here. What I remember most over the years was her courage, her beauty, and her dignity. She never missed a beat in Memphis although she must have been overcome with grief. She picked up his fallen banner and carried it bravely through the next almost 40 years.
I just heard a quote from her on CNN. "I did not marry a man, I married a vision". She made the vision her own.
