AUSTIN- Gov. Rick Perry today made the following statement about the life and legacy of Coretta Scott King:
"Today Anita and I join all Texans in celebrating the life of Coretta Scott King, and we extend our prayers as the nation mourns her loss. Mrs. King was a lifelong leader in the civil rights movement. She worked right alongside her husband, Martin Luther King, Jr., to advance the cause of freedom, and after his untimely passing she did not pause in her efforts to fight for economic and social justice. She honored her husband's legacy everyday, and today we honor her own proud legacy."
