Dinner honors MLK before memorial dedication
WASHINGTON (AP) - The site of a gala dinner kicking off dedication events for a memorial honoring the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in Washington has been changed following the East Coast earthquake.
The invitation-only dinner was to be held Wednesday at the National Building Museum. Due to damage to the building caused by Tuesday's 5.8-magnitude quake, officials say the dinner will now be held at the Washington Convention Center.
The official dedication of the memorial for the civil rights leader takes place Aug. 28. President Barack Obama is scheduled to speak.
