The Michael Jackson Auditorium was opened in 1989 but the King of Pop's name was covered with plywood upon his child molestation case.

A group of Michael Jackson fans is meeting with Los Angeles councilors to discuss the future of a building named in the singer's honor. Officials at Gardner Elementary School, where Jackson attended classes in 1970, opened the Michael Jackson Auditorium in 1989 in tribute to their most famous pupil.

But they decided to cover up Jackson's name with plywood in 2003 after the "Thriller" hitmaker was accused of child molestation. Now Jackson's fans have launched a campaign to have his name reinstated on the building, claiming the late star shouldn't be punished as he was cleared of any wrongdoing at his 2005 trial.

The group has collected more than 2,000 signatures and will meet with the Board of Education to plead their case next week, reports TMZ.com.

This is great news, Tv stations around the world should be covering this event as the sign is restored in honor of Michael Jackson. The school should issue an apology as well as the Tv programs that ranted lies about this man when the whole truth of black Male and extortion was there all along. but as you know time and time again, that if positve news comes out involving Michael Jackson, a media publication must always rain on his parade by trying to portray him, or his family in a negative light. Unbelivable? watch for an example next time "good news" on Jackson or his family comes up.
