Atlanta -(WAOK) There is some apparent opposition to the sale of Morris Brown College to the city of Atlanta and Friendship Baptist Church. Clark Atlanta University and the African Methodist Episcopal Church have filed objections to the sale.

The AME Church, claims that the $14.6 million purchase offer is not enough to cover the $18.6 million in debt the college owes it.

The Clark Atlanta objection involves an agreement between the two schools over the use of 17 acres of the property that were given to Morris Brown from Clark.

The property was given to Morris Brown on the condition that it be used for educational purposes. If the property is used for another purpose, it would revert back to Clark Atlanta.

Morris Brown representatives are scheduled to appear in bankruptcy court today for a hearing seeking approval for the property sale to Invest Atlanta, and Friendship Baptist Church.
