Martin Luther King's children battling over estate


Bernice King speaks during a news conference at historic Ebenezer Baptist Church where her father Martin Luther King

ATLANTA (AP) -- A generation after the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s death, his children are fighting among themselves again, this time over two of their father's most cherished possessions: his 1964 Nobel Peace Prize medal and the Bible he carried.
The civil rights leader's daughter Bernice King has both items, and her brothers, Dexter King and Martin Luther King III, asked a judge last week to order her to turn them over. She said her brothers want to sell them.

The King children have profited from their father's legacy. In 2006, Sotheby's auctioned off 10,000 documents from their collection for $32 million, with the siblings receiving equal shares of the proceeds.

I agree,
Sounds like straight up greed to me.
Hell even if they didn't want to work a 9 to 5...( I guessing they are not hurting for money, but then again why the bickering)
Maybe write a book on your fathers legacy?
