Facebook campaign over Jackson school sign

Nine months after his death a Facebook campaign has emerged to try to get Michael Jackson's name reinstated over a school auditorium. MJ attended Gardner Street Elementary School and subsequently donated money to it when he was a rising star. In 1989, he attended a ceremony with unveiling of Michael Jackson Auditorium, named in his honor. But when the signer faced child molestation charges, his name was covered up with a wooden sign which simply reads 'auditorium.' Jackson was found not guilty on all counts at his trial in 2005.  Now his supporters feel the name should be reinstated and have started a Facebook group, encouraging fans to download a letter to sign and send to the school district superintendent. The group has over 2,100 supporters.
