FILE - In this April 26, 2019 file photo, ornate architecture adorns structures in the median of the newly-named Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Kansas City, Mo. Until January, the street through the city's predominantly black east side was known as The Paseo. The City Council voted to rename it after King, but many in the community want the old name back.

A group called Save The Paseo say they want to honor King, but that the street is the wrong choice because of its historic importance to the city. Ministers who pushed for the change worry about the message that will be sent if King's name is removed. (AP Photo/Charlie Riedel File)
