HOT TOPICS: Private Ceremony to Unveil Gravesite Monument to ‘Mayor for Life’

Former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry, Jr. often said, “My greatest work comes in the community. You can’t lead where you won’t go.” Now those words will be set in stone during a private ceremony, led by Cora Masters Barry and the Marion Barry, Jr. Legacy Committee, as they and specially-invited guests gather on the second anniversary of his death for the unveiling of a graveside monument of Barry.

Following the unveiling on Wednesday, Nov. 23 at the Congressional Cemetery, a reception will be held honoring the District’s beloved “Mayor for Life” at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Northwest.
