thank you coretta scott king

It was Coretta Scott King, who so tirelessly held up the legacy of her husband Dr. Martin Luther King after his death. It is because of her and her continued stance for civil rights, women’s rights and human rights after his death we observe his birthday every year.

This 1969 Pulitzer Prize winning photo titled DEEP SORROW by Moneta Sleet was first featured in Ebony Magazine.

“I looked over and saw Mrs. King consoling her daughter. I was photographing the child as she was fidgeting on her mamas lap. Professionally I was doing what I had been trained to do, and I was glad of that because I was very involved emotionally. If I hadn’t been there working, I would have been off crying like everybody else.”

Mom of 2 boys McKenzie (Mack) founded Real Mom Daily because of her own need to connect with like minded women and companies. Environmental sustainability and social justice run through the veins of everything in Mack's life. She just spent a year in Bali, Indonesia where her kids attended the Green School. They lived in a simple house in the middle of the rice paddies in Ubud. Now back in Los Angeles, simplicity is quickly forgotten. Prior to REAL MOM DAILY, Mack co-founded and created Camp Chat and the XMA (Extreme Martial Arts) Life skills and Leadership Program which is licensed by over 2,000 martial arts schools around the world. Mack also did a stint as a lead character on the soap opera As The World Turns. Jett Lee taught her how to fire a gun (though she'd NEVER keep one in her home), she's had a few too many vodkas with Jackie Chan, she's written 2 screen plays, made a short film, fully renovated 6 houses, started 4 companies, and as a kid detasseled corn in Illinois (yes, she can drive a tractor) and like many entrepreneurs, she once had a paper route. With Real Mom Daily Mack interfaces with influencers, companies and politicians on city, state and national levels to advocate for issues that stand for social good. Mack's Quaker upbringing gives her an appreciation for all things simple. She cooks dinner and has a nightly moment of silence before her family eats at a table often graced by friends and family. When she looks at her glass she sees it half full but... she's a skipping contradiction. View all posts by McKenzie Satterthwaite
