Controversial quote will be removed from Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial

The controversial "drum major" quote on a Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial in D.C. will be removed.

The quote is said to be inaccurate since it was cut from a longer quote of his.

It's etched in stone, so they say they can only remove it, not replace it.

Replacing it could hurt the structure.

Those in Pueblo at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Cultural Center say removing it is the right thing to do.

"I would hope that they would get the correct image and really see what he stood for and what he was trying to portray because his words were always so accurate and good because he would speak so well," said Ruth Steele of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Cultural Center.

Work will begin on removing the quote in February or March.
