A new to me, but very intelligent Sister on Facebook, Natoma Belton, posted eloquently and in few words this on her FB page "DID Y'ALL KNOW MARTIN LUTHER KING MOTHER. ALBERTA KING WAS SHOT AND KILLED IN CHURCH BY THE FEDS ? I'LL ✋ WAIT👋 "and it struck me so as a blow to my brain, that I investigated it and found her words to ring true. How could I not have known this? My years loving my people and attending Black History courses from high school through college seemed pointless. I love Women's history and even Religious Studies so I made sure to take courses also in those areas....How was this never f**king discussed???? I am floored of my own ignorance and ashamed of my lack of knowledge, so much so that I did not even recognize the truth when it hit me in the face!!!!!!! Morally speaking, We must all know our own personal history, but also search to know Women's history in general...its important and it is mind blowing to say the least when you find out how much is left out of our so called "Higher Learning Curriculum".
Here are some links to info regarding Alberta King which also reveal some other very startling tragic facts regarding the King family:
