Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial
Organizers are preparing for a smaller crowd at the rescheduled dedication of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial than what was expected on the event’s original date.
The National Park Service says the new Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial took on a small amount of water as Hurricane Irene made its way through the nation’s capital overnight.
The general public has one more day to visit the new Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial before Sunday’s dedication.
For many people, the opening of the MLK memorial causes them to pause and remember the life of Dr. King and where they were during the Civil Rights Movement.
