Marion Barry Boulevard

To dedicate former Marion Barry's achievements as mayor of Washington, a petition was started on Sunday to rename the entire length of H Street and Benning Road in Maryland. Already, 525 people have signed the petition to rename the eight-mile street to Marion Barry Boulevard. The reason the street was chosen was that "it runs very close to Capitol Hill, the Capitol, and the White House," according to the Change.org petition. If interested in signing the petition, go here.
