KEEPING THE PEACE

MLK Kids Fight Over Peace Prize

The children of one of the greatest proponents of peace are battling over some of his most precious items. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s two sons, Dexter and Martin Luther King III, want to sell the civil-rights leader’s Nobel Peace Prize and his Bible, but his daughter, Bernice, is opposed to the sale. In Georgia, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney said the keepsakes must be removed to a court-controlled safety-deposit box, where “they won’t go anywhere until we resolve this matter.”
