Customer Review

on January 17, 2017
This is an extraordinary memoir (narrated to the Rev. Dr. Barbara Reynolds before King's death in 2006) that spans King's entire life. Unlike her previous book, My Life with Martin Luther King, Jr., this book establishes Coretta Scott King as an important figure in her own right, stepping out of the shadows cast by her husband.

One crucial facet of this book is King's abundantly graceful response to the allegations that her husband had numerous affairs. I will not spoil this response for readers, except to say that she handles it with the sort of directness and class that you would expect from Coretta Scott King.

I was also fascinated by the Rev. Dr. Barbara Reynolds's afterword "The Making of her Memoir," which illuminated the book, with its descriptions of the relationship and conversations out of which this volume arose.

My Life, My Love, My Legacy is sure to become the classic narration of Coretta Scott King's life, and will challenge generations-to-come with Mrs. King's deep commitment to nonviolence and justice that equaled, if not exceeded, that of her husband.
