    Dear Stuart,

    Thank you for your interest in the Memorial Foundation. Hopefully, this will answer your question.

    Early on, when Lei was first interviewed about the project, he was interviewed by the chinese news agency Xinhua, and in their efforts to translate the story, they mis spoke a few words. so when they say “Martin Luther Square” they’re referring to our memorial and when they say “Sculpture Committee” they mean our Exploratory Committee which is responsible for Lei’s initial discovery in St. Paul.

    Regards,

    Washington, DC Martin Luther King, Jr.
