ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) -- Coretta Scott King, who turned a life shattered by her husband's assassination into one devoted to enshrining his legacy of human rights and equality, has died, former Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young said Tuesday morning.

She was 78.

Young, who was a former civil rights activist and was close to the King family, broke the news during a phone call he made to NBC's "Today" show.

Very strong and tough lady. Put up with much criticism and hate in her life.

A true inspiration and hero.


May her family find comfort and may she rest in peace.
