“The Making of a Monument”

Display  at Merriweather Library  Answers Questions, Sets The Record Straight About Local MLK Monument 

Clifford Bell, Committee Chairman of the Buffalo African American Museum (BAAM), has announced that a display, “The Making of a Monument,” will be on exhibit at the Merriweather Library through the month of December .

“In Bufalo we commemorate Dr. King with a park named after  him and a  monument   that reflects his fight for equality for the Black man,” stated Mr. Bell. 

“There has been some confusion  surrounding   the monument,” he continued, and the display is designed to  “ answer  the questions “and correct the record.

 “It answers the question of  who built the monument and why. It answers the question why it doesn’t look exactly like Dr. King and most importantly what it stands for,” he concluded. “Join BAAM through the  month of December at the Merriweather Library and learn the truth!”
