Coretta Scott King is Simply Beautiful

There are so many wonderful things to say about Coretta Scott King.  Not only was her husband, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. a great man, but she was also a phenomenal woman.  She was a devoted wife, mother, civil rights leader, and service oriented woman.

My sister realizes that some of the best gifts to give my kids are books and she gave us a great one yesterday. She presented my daughter with the most beautifully illustrated book about Coretta Scott King, Coretta Scott by Ntozake Shange and illustrated by Kadir Nelson.

The book Coretta Scott, displayed in the living room.

Coretta Scott King is a perfect woman to feature during Black History Month.  The 2013 theme from The Association for the Study of African American Life and History  is The Crossroads of Freedom and Equality:  The Emancipation Proclamation and the March on Washington

What activities and lessons do you have planned for 
Black History Month??

I've created a Black History Month Activity Set.  Please stop by my Teachers Pay Teachers store to check it out.  Click on either image below to hop on over to my TPT store.
