Due to Hurricane Irene the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial Dedication that was supposed to happen on August 28th; has been postponed indefinitely. The hope was to celebrate this newly erected memorial on the 48th Anniversary of the “I Have a Dream” speech that took place on August 28th 1963 on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
Roland S. Martin has stated via Twitter that the following events are still scheduled as planned Friday and Saturday:
- ALL events scheduled Friday and Saturday morning is still on
- The Friday 9am dedication for All members of Alpha Phi Alpha (MLK’s Fraternity) is still scheduled as plan at the MLK Memorial. Alphas are expected to wear gold blazers
- Saturday’s 9am MLK Memorial prayer service at the Basilica is still scheduled as plan.
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
