Martin Luther King Jr. Day  

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

This striking memorial to Civil Rights icon Martin Luther King, Jr., displays 14 powerful quotes from his speeches and writings. The Inscription Wall, in Washington DC, lets the visitor browse the quotes without the structure of a timeline—the earliest quote dates to 1956 and the Montgomery Bus Boycott; the most recent is taken from Dr. King"s sermon at the National Cathedral in Washington just four days before he was assassinated.
