My Life, My Love, My Legacy by Coretta Scott KingThe life story of Coretta Scott King—wife of Martin Luther King Jr., founder of the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change, and singular twentieth-century American civil rights activist—as told fully for the first time
Born in 1927 to daringly enterprising black parents in the Deep South, Coretta Scott had always felt called to a special purpose. One of the first black scholarship students recruited to Antioch College, a committed pacifist, and a civil rights activist, she was an avowed feminist—a graduate student determined to pursue her own career—when she met Martin Luther King Jr., a Baptist minister insistent that his wife stay home with the children. But in love and devoted to shared Christian beliefs and racial justice goals, she married King, and events promptly thrust her into a maelstrom of history throughout which she was a strategic partner, a standard bearer, a marcher, a negotiator, and a crucial fundraiser in support of world-changing achievements.
As a widow and single mother of four, while butting heads with the all-male African American leadership of the times, she championed gay rights and AIDS awareness, founded the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change, lobbied for fifteen years to help pass a bill establishing the US national holiday in honor of her slain husband, and was a powerful international presence, serving as a UN ambassador and playing a key role in Nelson Mandelas election.
Coretta’s is a love story, a family saga, and the memoir of an independent-minded black woman in twentieth-century America, a brave leader who stood committed, proud, forgiving, nonviolent, and hopeful in the face of terrorism and violent hatred every single day of her life.

The single was released in the United Kingdom on 20 November It topped the charts in Slovakia and Slovenia. During his appearance on RTL Late Night on 2 November , Williams said that the song was "about positivity and making the most of your life. I have been to rehab twice and had lots of therapy. I realised that what happens to you when you become older is because of you when you were a kid. So this song is about hope and spreading positivity instead of negativity.
Upholding the Catholic character of the University of Notre Dame. Maggie Garnett. One of the highlights of my summer, without a doubt, was a two-hour ode to ABBA. It is an almost ridiculously happy movie, and it carries an infectious joy. Even a decade after the original Meryl Streep centered film, Mamma Mia 2 manages to pick up where the first left off and far surpasses its predecessor in real emotional depth. Mamma Mia 2 walks a precarious line between prequel and sequel.
