Legal Rights Of Juveniles
Dr. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR., and FAMILY, Civil Rights Area
Rev. Bernice Albertine King, Preacher, Public Speaker, Lawyer
Nationally and internationally known as one of the most powerful, motivating and life-changing orators and speakers, Bernice A. King leaves her audiences spellbound and challenged.
Born the youngest daughter of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King, Bernice King began her oratorical journey when she spoke in her mother’s stead at the United Nations at age 17. Over the years, Bernice King has had the occasion to speak in Sydney, Australia, Lubeck, Germany, Argentina, and South America to name a few. In the summer of 2000, Bernice King narrated the “Lincoln Portrait” along with a symphony orchestra in Keil, Germany at the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival.
Bernice King is a graduate of Spelman College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and a Masters of Divinity and Doctorate of Law Degrees from Emory University.
King has also received an honorary Doctorate of Divinity degree from Wesley College. She is currently a member of the State Bar of Georgia.
With a strong concern for community and family partnership, Bernice King was privileged to serve as a law clerk in the Fulton County Juvenile Court system, under Judge Glenda Hatchett, where she interacted with troubled boys and girls. It was there that King realized that a growing number of teens have been double victims: first of society and secondly of an ineffective legal system based in retribution instead of rehabilitation. Bernice King has also served as a mentor to a group of 5th grade girls at an inner-city Atlanta elementary school, where she spent time molding their character and values so that one day they too would become a force to be reckoned with in the world. Among other community activities and services, Bernice King was instrumental in organizing coalitions to close a pornographic shop located within a mile of a local high school. She also assisted The Dow Company in building a Habitat for Humanity home in Americus, Georgia.
As an ordained preacher, Bernice King is a minister at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Georgia under the dynamic leadership of Bishop Eddie L. Long. In addition to being a speaker/orator/preacher, King has planned and organized numerous conferences, seminars and workshops for all walks of life. Bernice King has successfully coordinated non-violent conflict resolution conferences for college and university students and women and family conferences; she has conducted a class on race relations at Mississippi College in Jackson, MS and taught a year- long leadership development class at her previous church.
Bernice King has been featured on such shows as, Oprah, BET Talk with Tavis Smiley and the Judge Hachett Show to name a few and in such magazines as People Magazine, Ebony, Essence, Ladies Home Journal, Gospel Today and Charisma Magazine. This year American Legacy Magazine recognized Bernice as a "Woman of Strength and Courage." King has also guest hosted a live lunchtime television show on CNN.
As an author, Bernice King has to her credit, her first book, Hard Questions, Heart Answers, a compelling and inspiring book.

In late 2007 in Indonesia, significant progress continues in reconstruction and recovery efforts following the devastating December 2004 tsunami that struck the coast of the northern province of Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam (commonly called Aceh) on Sumatra Island. The disaster killed more than 103,000 Aceh residents and left more than 530,000 homeless. One-third of those affected were children. New schools and child centres, and the restoration of other social services have enabled many families to return to their original communities. Sixty-seven permanent schools have been built with UNICEF assistance, 126 are under construction, and another 153 are planned. The schools are constructed under UNICEF's 'build back better' policy and are designed to be earthquake-resistant and 'child-friendly,' offering education in a safe and healthy learning environment. UNICEF also supports ongoing child-protection initiatives. Thirteen districts now have procedures in place for managing child rights violations, and district court officials have been trained in juvenile justice issues. UNICEF helped establish child-friendly desks in police stations in four districts and a juvenile justice court in the province to ensure the sensitive treatment of legal and criminal cases involving children. In the areas of water and sanitation, UNICEF and its partners continue to provide water to 182,000 internally displaced persons and other families. Rural Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) projects, such as latrine building and hygiene education, have reached some 20,000 people in 157 communities and more than 50,000 children in schools.
