NBA’s Jaylen Brown, Bernice King on MLK Day

Jaylen Brown, recognized last year as the NBA’s top playoff rookie, commemorates Dr. Martin Luther King and Coretta Scott King on MLK Day.

Bernice King, Dr. King’s daughter, has encouraged Americans to also recognize the contributions of Coretta Scott King, Dr. King’s wife.

It’s an appropriate and needed reminder. Coretta Scott King was the founder of the King Center, and a co-architect of Dr. King’s legacy. Without her, it is likely there would be no Martin Luther King Day.

Dr. King’s dream? Coretta Scott King shared it, helped develop it, and carried it forward.
