As the nation and world celebrated the memory of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, his two sons and daughter were caught up in their latest fight over control of their father's legacy. King’s estate wants to revoke a nonprofit’s license to use the leader’s memorabilia.
The King Center and the National Park Service are teaming up April 4 to remember the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. The King Center also will host an event to launch its 50 days of nonviolence campaign for young people.
In a statement, King says he will remain an active member of the King Center board of trustees, but will devote most of his efforts towards launching a new organization dedicated to the principles of nonviolence, social justice and human rights.
