Two of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s children have been sued by the institution their mother founded —- the latest chapter in a family drama that has become increasingly public in recent years.
In the suit filed on Monday, Dexter King said his siblings have established foundations that compete with the King Center and have used the Atlanta center for personal gain. It also says the foundations conflict with their duties on the center’s board of directors, which all three children serve on.
The lawsuit continues an escalating feud between Dexter, Bernice and Martin Luther King III.
