We are overjoyed to announce October 16 as Dedication Day. Many have worked so long to help build this dream – a Memorial to Dr. King and his legacy,” said Harry E. Johnson, Sr., president and CEO of the Washington, DC Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation, Inc. “Due to the postponement, we are planning an event much smaller in scale but just as big in spirit.”
There will be limited, reserved seating for the official Dedication party inside the forecourt of the Memorial. Previously issued media credentials are no longer valid. Visit www.DedicatetheDream.org for the most up-to-date information about the Dedication. The General Motors Foundation and Chevrolet will serve as Dedication Chair and Dedication Co-Chair is The Tommy Hilfiger Corporate Foundation. Dedication Vice Chairs include Aetna, Boeing, BP, Coca-Cola, Delta Air Lines, GE, MacFarlane Partners, McDonalds, Salamander Hotels, Travelers, Wal-Mart Stores, and Zoilëmax Foundation.
