Washington (CNN) - A controversial quote inscribed in the granite of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on the National Mall will be corrected, an official at the Interior Department confirmed to CNN.
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has given the National Park Service 30 days to consult with the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation, members of the King family and others to decide on a more accurate version of the quote, the official said.
As it should be!
Who got it WRONG and what took them so long to realize it? All in all – it's a beautiful site and worth visiting!! I will be celebrating at many events this weekend!
I agree that Martin Luther King, Jr. should be remembered because he did so SO much good for so many people in MANY states. I am from Louisiana and one year older than he was but he helped me to help others to get blacks regisrered to vote, drink in courthouse bathrooms, use courthouse restrooms, etc. Many faced guns. Now, blacks/whites are elected officials, use the SAME restroomd/bathrooms, attend meetings and discuss community issues, etc.because of him it is wonderful.. I applaud alphas and others for the Washinhton, DC monument (which is great)
Happy Birthday MLK we love you .
