Bernice King Visits SCLC Convention

 DECATUR, GA. - Elder Bernice King made an appearance at the SCLC convention this weekend.  The daughter of famed civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. visited the convention of the badly divided group co-founded by her father, but there was no sign that anyone had mended its leadership rift.

Bernice King visited a church in Decatur where a faction of the split Southern Christian Leadership Conference was holding its annual meeting.

Rev. Markel Hutchins extended the invitation to Elder King.  The interim president and CEO said he hugged and embraced King. King was elected the SCLC's eighth president and first woman leader in October. But she has refused to take office until the organization mends a rift on its board of directors.

King also attended a rival SCLC convention held earlier this week.
