Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and legacy was celebrated in Buffalo over the weekend ahead of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. On Saturday, community leaders re-dedicated a statue in the park bearing his name. Despite the celebrations, controversy over the statue has reigned since the day of its unveiling.
