Martin Luther King Jr Memorial
One group participating in commemorating the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech is the Canterbury Shaker Village, which is holding a special tour and bell ringing this week.
District of Columbia leaders will be using the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington to advocate for statehood and greater autonomy for the city.
A year after the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial opened to visitors on the National Mall, the group behind the monument is still working with the National Park Service to change an inscription quoting the civil rights leader.
The National Park Service will replace an inscription of a controversially paraphrased quote on the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial and replace it with the full transcription.
