The United Steelworkers mourns the passing of Coretta Scott King, whose life exemplified the highest standards of human dignity, and of service to the cause of social justice.
Following her husband’s assassination, Mrs. King became the guardian of the dream, carrying the message of nonviolent social change to all corners of the earth.
“Many despair at all the evil and unrest and disorder in the world today,” she taught us, “but I see a new social order and I see the dawn of a new day.”
“A woman of her deep convictions and abiding faith in social justice will be sorely missed,” said USW International President Leo W. Gerard.
