Equal Time Series Host Martha Burk explores the life of Coretta Scott King with biographer Barbara Reynolds, a founding editor of USA Today. Burk also interviews Carol Moseley Braun, the first and only Black woman elected to the U.S. Senate. Includes audio from Coretta King's 1996 Atlanta speech. Read the full description.

King_small Dr. Barbara Reynolds spent many hours with Coretta Scott King over a period of 25 years, recording her thoughts and stories of the civil rights struggle as partner to Martin Luther King Jr., and her continuing activism for many causes after his death.  Following an audio clip from one of Coretta King's speeches, Reynolds talks about what Mrs. King wanted to leave as a legacy, why she felt she was not a mere helpmate, and her dreams for the future of race relations in the United States and around the world.

Carol Moseley Braun discusses her historic victory as the first and only Black woman elected to the U.S. Senate, including ethics charges brought against her and dismissed.  She explores her childhood in a segregated society, and her subsequent time as Ambassador to New Zealand, ending with her assessment of where Black women and men are today in achieving political, economic, and social equality.
