I think that if Dr. King was comfortable saying “Negro mother,” then it would seem totally appropriate to leave Negro Bill Canyon as it is named to preserve the authenticity of the Moab area.
Anything else strikes me as being far over the top political correctness.
Moab has a colorful history in the names of its landmarks. It would seem sad to lose this or water it down further.
