>>> word that a quote on the new martin luther king memorial will be changed after it was said that it didn't reflect his words and made him sound arrogant. the memorial opened in august with a quote, i was a drum major for justice, peace and righteousness. but the phrase was shortened from a speech dr. king began by saying, yes, if you want to say that i was a drum major say that i was a drum major for justice.
