Aug. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Organizers scrapped plans for an Aug. 28 dedication of a memorial to slain civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. because of Hurricane Irene.

The formal dedication will instead take place sometime in September or October, the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation said on its website. The ceremony had been intended to coincide with the 48th anniversary of King’s “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington.

The memorial has been open to the public since Aug. 22.
