On February 6, 2006, people began lining up at dawn outside of Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church to pay their respects to the late Mrs. Coretta Scott King, widow of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose body lay in state in the small sanctuary. At close to midnight, the crowd has dwindled to a determined few. This lovely, image-soaked testament to the civil rights icon is seen through the eyes of five women at the end of that long line of mourners. A Song for Coretta brims with wit, personality and life-affirming energy.
