Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King In 1952, Coretta was introduced to Martin Luther King Jr. She saw a man looking for a wife, though she wasn’t sure she was ready. Yet, she trusted her gut, and opened up to the man who she would eventually marry in 1953, and would soon become one of the greatest civil rights leaders of our time. After his assassination, she showed unmatched strength and courage as she continued to keep his legacy alive until her death in 2006 at the age of 78
