ATLANTA - Coretta Scott King was hospitalized in fair condition Wednesday and two family friends said the 78-year-old widow of Martin Luther King Jr. had suffered a stroke.

King was admitted to Piedmont Hospital on Tuesday, and the family issued a statement Wednesday saying she was resting comfortably. It expressed thanks for the "outpouring of care and support that's being sent from around the world."

Hospital spokeswoman Diana Lewis and the family wouldn't discuss her illness, but the Rev. Joseph Lowery said King had suffered a stroke and was having trouble speaking.

Often history forgets or leaves out the supporting cast around great individuals. In the case of Coretta Scott King, she carried on her husbands work following his assassination in 1968. The Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change was established to promote her husbands ideas and dreams.
