Now this is a beautiful picture. Betty Shabazz and Coretta Scott King. They both were into the arts. Coretta was an Opera Singer and Betty was a dancer. Betty graduated from Tuskegee Institute in Alabama and Coretta won a scholarship to the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston.
Malcolm X and Betty Shabazz were champions of black freedom and equality in America. In 1955 the two met at a dinner party where they shared stories of their experiences of racism. "I really had a lot of pent-up anxiety about my experience in the South," Shabazz said in a 1990 interview, "and Malcolm reassured me that it was understandable how I felt." After a long courtship, the two wed in 1958 and had six daughters.
