It is Coretta Scott King’s birthday! How do I know this? Elizabeth Warren tweeted about it. Warren’s tweet is not substantive and has no links to sources or anything that recognizes Coretta S. King’s life or activism. (Anyone have opinions on performative allyship or referencing specific activists/organizations/people for political gain?) In honor of King, I wanted to share a multi-part interview with her and one specifically on her advice for young activists.
