Comments and Notes
TITLE: The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Westchester County Memorial
DEVELOPMENT: Dedication date (1) -- Local newspaper article reports unveiling on 4/12/2007, the date used here; on a plaque attached to the statue the date given is 1/15/2007.
DEVELOPMENT: Dedication date (2) -- On 6/16/2007, re-dedication held "to address an oversight in public relations." (Journal News) White Plains clergy and local officials were inadvertently excluded from 4/12/2007 unveiling.
