Work to remove quote from MLK memorial begins Monday

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

The National Park Service will start work today to remove a quote from the Martin Luther King Junior Memorial.

The "drum major" quote will be taken off and not replaced.

Some people said it is misleading because it's paraphrased.

The memorial's original sculptor will be in D.C. next week to make the final changes.

Repairs are expected to be finished by the August 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.
