“Destiny Builds Toward Historic Weekend”

Bernice A. King, daughter of Dr Martin Luther King, will address Destiny New Zealand’s Labour weekend political meeting in Auckland.

Over the years, Bernice has had the occasion to speak in such places as The White House, DuPont Corp., Warner-Lambert Corporation, AT&T, Lockheed/Martin, DIA, University of Toledo, Xavier University, University of North Carolina, Duke University, Pepperdine University, Department of Defence, Salvation Army, and in such places as Sydney, Australia, Lubeck, Germany, Argentina, S. America to name a few.

Bernice 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. She has also received an honorary Doctorate of Divinity degree from Wesley College. She is currently a member of the State Bar of Georgia.

The public meeting will be held at the Destiny Auditorium situated at 18 Allright Place in Mt Wellington (Auckland) on Saturday 23rd October - 7pm.
