One response to “Lansing street renaming to honor Malcolm X appears to be on track”

    I still much prefer the idea mentioned at this same city council meeting: a Memorial Wall or Wall of Honor to treat all people equally when the city wants to honor someone’s contributions to Lansing. Located at City Hall on the plaza, such a wall would actually give the reasons for the person being honored on a plaque so the public would know what they are being honored for instead of just knowing a name on a street sign. This saves the time and trouble of renaming streets/parks/buildings as well. Cheaper too!
