Dorothy Cotton Civil Rights Pioneer Has Died, She Was 88
Dorothy Cotton, civil rights pioneer and Martin Luther King colleague has died, she was 88.

Cotton died Sunday afternoon at the Kendal at Ithaca retirement community in New York, said Jared Harrison, a close friend who was at her bedside. Harrison said she had battled illnesses recently but didn’t specify a cause of death.

Cotton was director of the Atlanta-based civil rights group’s Citizenship Education Program. She was one of only a handful of women who worked on the executive staff of the SCLC.

Cotton’s biography at the Dorothy Cotton Institute states that she became one of King’s closest colleagues while she served as national director of education for more than a decade.
