Kings’ children on hand for dedication of crypt

SHARE Kings’ children on hand for dedication of crypt

ATLANTA (AP) — In a poetic tribute to their parents, the children of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King dedicated a new crypt for both husband and wife Monday and declared "the peacemaker and the peacekeeper are together again."

All four of the Kings' children were on hand for the dedication ceremony.

Coretta Scott King died in January at 78. Her husband was assassinated in 1968. She was laid to rest in a temporary grave until her husband's crypt at the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change was replaced with a larger one for both of them.
