Last year she suffered a stroke and a heart attack and now she's passed away. She was up there in the years however this absolutely shocked me. She was Dr. Martin Luther King's widow. She leaves behind four children.
When I first came to Morehouse I ran into her a couple of times. I'm not joking she was at a crown forum if I remember correctly and then I sat a couple of rows in front of her at Sister's Chapel over at Spelman. No one can say she didn't make her rounds. I didn't speak to her though I might have been both too nervous and perhaps it would have been presumptuous.
Oh yeah this picture I just uploaded was linked from FOXNews.com it was at the funeral of her husband with daughter Bernice in her lap.
