Bernice Albertine King (born March 28, 1963) is the second daughter and youngest child of civil rights leaders Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and Coretta Scott King. Her older siblings are Martin Luther King III, Dexter Scott King, and the late Yolanda Denise King. Bernice is the only King child to become a minister. She was elected in 2009 as the President of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), but declined in January of 2011, citing disagreements with the organization's leadership.
Due to her profile and skill in public speaking, King has been asked to speak around the world. Ebony magazine named her as one of their Ten of Tomorrow future leaders of the black community. She is also a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority.
Bernice was only five years old when her father died. At 17, she was invited to speak at the United Nations in the absence of her mother. She is a graduate of Douglass High School in Atlanta, attended Grinnell College in Iowa and she graduated from Spelman College with a degree in psychology.
