Dora McDonald, Martin Luther King's private secretary from 1960 until his death, has died at age 81. While few have heard of Ms. McDonald, she was a very important figure in King's work, and was the one who had to tell Coretta Scott King that her husband had been murdered.

Wow. The synchronicity of her death with tomorrow's remeberance of Dr. Reverend Martin Luther King's birthday of January 15, 1929.
