Coretta Scott King, 78, the widow of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., was released from an Atlanta hospital after suffering a stroke in mid-August that left her partly paralyzed, her doctor said.
King will continue rehabilitation at home six days a week.
The stroke paralyzed King’s right side and affected her ability to speak.
“She is saying some sentences,” Maggie Mermin, King’s doctor, said at a briefing outside Piedmont Hospital. “Yesterday, she walked 80 feet twice.”
