JOINT STATEMENT OF BLACK WOMEN LEADERS ON SENATOR MITCH MCCONNELL’S ATTEMPTS TO SILENCE WORDS OF MRS. CORETTA SCOTT KING

The undersigned are prominent African-American women leaders and we write to express our outrage at the actions taken last night by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Republican majority on the Senate floor.

Last night, on the floor of the Senate, Senator Elizabeth Warren delivered a powerful statement in opposition to the nomination of Senator Jefferson Beauregard Sessions to be Attorney General of the United States. Senator McConnell interrupted Senator Warren when she began quoting a letter written by Coretta Scott King, the wife of renowned civil rights leader, Martin Luther King, Jr. Senator McConnell said Senator Warren had "impugned the motives and conduct" of Senator Sessions.

In 1986, Coretta Scott King, a prominent civil rights activist in her own right, wrote a nine-page letter opposing the nomination of Jeff Sessions to a federal district court judgeship. She focused on Sessions' targeting of voting rights champions,  and Dr. King's colleagues Spencer Hogue, Albert Turner, and Evelyn Turner.
