Today is the 93rd birthday of Coretta Scott King, wife of Dr Martin Luther King Jr.

For 30 years she was my mentor and friend. She honored me by allowing me to write her memoirs: My Life, My Love, My Legacy. I pray that one day we will honor and celebrate her birthday. Here was a woman who spent 15 years of her life to help make her husband, one of the greatest martyrs of our generation a holiday and after his birthday served this country for more than three decades as an activist and political voice for good.

“On Sept. 15, 1982, USA TODAY was founded on a commitment ‘to serve as a forum for better understanding and unity’ across the USA, and the editors of The Nation’s Newspaper pursue that goal in every edition.

“The daily Opinion and Inquiry pages of USA TODAY play a key role in the pursuit and so does Barbara Reynolds, editor of the Inquiry page and a member of the Opinion page editorial board.

“This book, And Still We Rise, represents a special segment of Ms. Reynold’s share in the USA TODAY commitment — a collection of her interviews with 50 black men and women whose achievements make them strong role models for everyone.
