King, surrounded by her supporters, announced that she was holding a prayer vigil Friday at 6:30 p.m. in light of the turmoil fueled by a heated court battle over who is in charge of the SCLC. The vigil will be held at Ebenezer Baptist Church in the Horizon Sanctuary.
The power struggle began after questions were raised about $569,000 spent by then-chairman Raleigh Trammell and then-treasurer Spiver Gordon from SCLC accounts. The money issue is still being investigated, and the Trammel-Gordon group has sued to stay in control of the SCLC. The other group is being led by Sylvia Tucker, who had been second under Trammell.
King has chosen to remain relatively silent about the situation, stating that as a minster, she can only follow the word of God.
