Football star Michael Sam made a bit of Black history when he came out as gay this month. To do that ahead of the NFL draft took a lot of courage. Sam will no doubt be remembered as a groundbreaker, but he couldn’t have done it without groundbreakers before him – like Coretta Scott King. Remembered for civil rights marches in the ‘60s alongside her husband, most don’t realize she was an early advocate for gay rights as well. Includes audio from one of her speeches.
