Walking many miles to school in the dusty road, young Coretta knew, too well, the unfairness of life in the segregated south.

A yearning for equality began to grow.

Together with Martin Luther King, Jr., she gave birth to a vision and a journey—with dreams of freedom for all.

This extraordinary poetic text by Ntozake Shange captures the movement for civil rights in the United States and honors its most elegant inspiration, Coretta Scott.
