Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Dedicated
VOAVideo: Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Dedicated
Delayed by Hurricane Irene in August, the day finally came. U.S. President Barack Obama, the country's first black president, dedicated a $120-million statue and memorial park Sunday to the slain civil rights leader who helped pave the way for him and many others in the United States. VOA's Laurel Bowman was there.
