The CEO of the King Center used Saturday night’s Salute to Greatness Awards Dinner to talk about an ongoing legal controversy.
Fox 5 and All News 106.7 are reporting that King Center CEO Dr. Bernice King said the difference between the center and the Martin Luther King, Jr., estate isn’t over money.
“The continuing notion that we fighting over money … to me, that’s furthest from the truth,” King said. “I am not fighting over money. I am fighting for the right to continue to do the work that my father gave his life for.”
The annual dinner was attended by several hundred people at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Atlanta. Muhammad Ali and the Xerox Corp. were both honored at the event. Also in attendance was Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle.
