Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Ohioans Mourn Coretta Scott King
Ohioans who knew her or just admired her are mourning the death of Coretta Scott King.
In Columbus, the director of the King Arts Complex says King was a quiet, determined civil rights leader. Barbara Nicholson tells WOSU-AM, “Coretta was a quiet, gentle voice with dignity, a gentle reminder of what she and Dr. King stood for.”
Cincinnati’s Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth says she was a woman of great strength whose “concrete” manner of speaking helped the world understand the civil rights movement and helped to define her husband. Shuttlesworth marched with both Kings during the civil rights struggle in the 1960s.
Coretta Scott King was a graduate of Antioch College in Yellow Springs and returned to Ohio many times.
