Enough of the "Symbolism"
It's Time for a Realistic Statue to Honor Dr. King!
Dr. MLK Day is January 15!
On that day the Coalition to Save MLK Park will call a community press conference in front of that " Black Head " to kick off the "We The People Campaign" to collect 10,000 signatures of residents from Erie County and the City of Buffalo. The petition will be calling for the removal of the current Martin Luther King "statue" in MLK Park and the creation of an enlarged life-size identical replica of Dr. King to replace it.
We in the Black and African-American community have grown tired of come symbolism when it comes to the visual recognition of Dr. King. We now seek realism and the opportunity to be able to recognize this great American. It's critically important for our children and for future generations to be able to do so as well!
