ATLANTA (CBS46) -
Bernice King and Elisabeth Omilami are both daughters of iconic civil rights leaders.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. marched and considered Hosea Williams, Omilami's father, a close friend who was in Dr. King's inner circle.
With their fathers being so close, it's no surprise that Omilami stood in the pulpit of the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church with Bernice King as she made a public plea to her brothers, Martin King III and Dexter King, to change their minds about wanting to sell their father's Bible and Nobel Peace Prize.
"I continue to hold fast that we are dealing with issues that are too sacred to sell and symbolic to matters that go to matters that go to the heart of where we are in society," said Bernice King.
Bernice King said she will comply with a judge's recent order for her to return her father's Bible and Nobel prize to the King Estate. They will be place in a safety deposit box that only the court will have access to until the court battle is over.
"I appeal to you to reconsider your position and not sell our father's Bible and Nobel Peace Prize," said Bernice King.
Omilami issued this warning to the person interested in buying them.
"I will say on behalf of myself as a minister that anyone who touches these sacred elements watch your back," said Omilami. "If you decide to buy these sacred elements watch your back because they come with a price. They have been paid with the blood and sacrifice of million human beings."
