"When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every tenement and
every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed
up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews
and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and
sing in the words of the old spiritual, "Free at last, free at last.
Thank God Almighty, we are free at last."
Bush Gets an Earful at Coretta King's Funeral
By Peter Wallsten and Richard Fausset
LITHONIA, Ga. -- A day of eulogizing Coretta Scott King turned into a rare, in-person rebuke of President Bush, with a succession of civil rights and political leaders assailing White House policies as evidence that the dream of social and racial equality pursued by King and her slain husband is far from reality.
Bush and his wife, Laura, sat on stage as worshippers cheered the suggestions from several speakers that the civil rights movement -- led in the 1960s by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and fostered since his assassination by the widowed Coretta -- remains alive, its goals not fully realized.
Tuesday's service, lasting six hours, much of it carried live nationally on cable television, marked an unusual combination of political pageantry and civil rights history. The spectacle included humor, interpretive dance, gospel and classical music, shouting and testifying, and a list of dignitaries that made room for three former presidents, poet Maya Angelou and crooner Michael Bolton.
But it also included pointed political commentary, much of it aimed at Bush. The president and his wife watched as the sanctuary at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church near Atlanta filled with raucous cheers for their White House predecessors, Bill and Hillary Clinton -- a reminder that five years into his term, Bush and the Republican Party he leads have not found the acceptance across black America that GOP strategists had hoped.
Yolanda King Remembered
The eldest daughter of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Junior has died.
A family spokesperson says 51-year old Yolanda King was with one of her brothers when she passed away.
Her family says King had a history of heart problems, but it's unclear right now if that was the cause of her death.
She was born in 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama, in the midst of the turbulent civil rights era.
Yolanda Denise King was the eldest of four children born to Coretta Scott and Martin Luther King, Junior, and all throughout her life, she strived to carry on her father's legacy.
"When her father was assassinated, she was so young... but she never became bitter... she never became hostile... she just got out there and kept pushing... and kept fighting and telling her story of the movement," says family friend and Georgia Congressman John Lewis.
King lived in the Los Angeles area, where she founded a production company.
She was an author, a motivational speaker and actor who appeared in a 1978 NBC miniseries about her father's life.
She also appeared in the film, "Ghosts of Mississippi."
Her death comes a little more than a year after the death of her mother.
"She really had the grace and poise of her mother...the intellect of her father... she was a real ambassador for peace and love and non-violence... she will be deeply missed... this is unreal for me, it's unbelievable to see this young woman gone so soon," adds Lewis.
Yolanda King is survived by her three siblings.
She was 51 years old.
