There have been reports that there has been some movement in the grave of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The reports began to circulate when news broke that his three youngest children, Martin Luther King III, Dexter King, and Bernice King, were fighting… again. Apparently, he’s turning over in his grave. This time the fight concerns the late civil rights leaders’ “traveling bible” and his Nobel Peace Prize.
MLK Jr.’s sons, have asked a judge to force Bernice to relinquish the aforementioned items. According to the AP, “Martin Luther King Jr.’s heirs in 1995 assigned their rights to property inherited from the civil rights icon to the Estate of Martin Luther King Jr. Inc. The lawsuit says Bernice King has “secreted and sequestered” the medal and Bible in violation of that agreement.”
For her part, Bernice issued a statement that her brothers want the items so they can sell them to a private buyer. She has stated that she is against that.
