mlk-coretta

In this photograph, Coretta is upset with her husband, MLK, who had been attacked the night before by a disturbed white racist but had not defended himself. Though the police urged King to press charges, he refused.

“The system we live under creates people such as this youth,” he said. “I’m not interested in pressing charges. I’m interested in changing the kind of system that produces such men.”
