People talk and talk about what MLK brought to the national dialogue, and sometimes treat him as the great black martyr, as though his revolutionary effect was only about race. But just as important was his revolution in the process of rebelling: His refinement of Ghandi's techniques of non-violent civil disobedience. When we think of King as a supreme advocate of willful non-violence, it makes sense to hear that his widow, Coretta King, is a vegetarian - according to this profile, she "consumes a vegetarian diet that's heavy on raw food." That's living the dream.
