Happy Black History Month! This year I've decided to spotlight women in Black History. In highlighting these remarkable women, I've produced a luxury soap that I felt reflected some facts about them and I'll list those below for you. In our lineup is Coretta Scott King, my depiction of her exhibits grace, beauty and that of a leader. This soap is topped with diamonds amongst the gorgeous black waves to symbolize how she always presented herself in a beautiful fashion with beautifully coiffed hair and baubles. Born: 4/27/1927 Rest: 1/30/2006 Wife of Martin Luther King, Jr. Favorite Colors: Brown and Green Coretta Scott King was an American author, activist, civil rights leader, and the wife of Martin Luther King Jr. An advocate for African-American equality, she was a leader for the civil rights movement in the 1960s. King was also a singer who often incorporated music into her civil rights work. Born and raised in Marion, Alabama, Coretta Scott graduated valedictorian from Lincoln High School. She received a B.A. in music and education from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and then went on to study concert singing at Boston’s New England Conservatory of Music, where she earned a degree in voice and violin. While in Boston she met Martin Luther King, Jr. who was then studying for his doctorate in systematic theology at Boston University. They were married on June 18, 1953, and in September 1954 took up residence in Montgomery, Alabama, with Coretta Scott King assuming the many responsibilities of pastor’s wife at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church.
