As America and the world celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. birthday, his “I have a dream children” are duking it out in an Atlanta court over cashing in over his Bible and Nobel Peace Prize medal.
King's estate, controlled by Dexter King and Martin Luther King III, his sons, is suing daughter Bernice King to retrieve the Bible and the Nobel Peace Prize medal, which are in her possession. King’s two sons apparently desperately need the money and want to sell the items to a private buyer.
In 2007, Yolanda, King's oldest child, who pursued his dream of racial harmony through drama and motivational speaking, collapsed and died while on stage after giving a speech. She was 51-year-old.
According to Bernice King, “While I love my brothers dearly, this latest decision by them reveals desperation beyond comprehension.”
