AP: LITHONIA, Ga. - Ten thousand mourners—including four U.S. presidents, numerous members of Congress and many gray-haired veterans of the civil rights movement—said goodbye to Coretta Scott King on Tuesday, with President Bush saluting her as “a woman who worked to make our nation whole.”
The immense crowd filled the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church—a modern, arena-style megachurch in a suburban Atlanta county that was once a stronghold of the Ku Klux Klan but today has one of the most affluent black populations in the country.
