Soggy weather has forced a delay in the installation of the new Martin Luther King Jr. Heritage Trails marker in General Worth Square.
Previously scheduled for late October, the unveiling has been moved to Jan. 21, 2019.
The memorial will commemorate King’s Oct. 22, 1959, visit to Fort Worth. The civil rights leader was invited to Fort Worth by the late Vada Felder, a local activist. Felder befriended King at a church meeting in Nashville and invited him to deliver a sermon in Fort Worth later that year.
The memorial plaque will be installed across from the John F. Kennedy Memorial a block north of the Fort Worth Convention Center.
