A stone sculpture honoring the late civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was unveiled on the National Mall in Washington D.C. today.
The gigantic ‘Stone of Hope’ sculpture of King was created by Chinese artist Lei Yixin. The statue was erected near the George Washington Monument at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. The memorial is the first on the National Mall to honor an African-American man and the first to honor a person who did not serve as president.
Engraved on one side of the statue are the words “OUT OF THE MOUNTAIN OF DESPAIR: A STONE OF HOPE.”
Tears come to my eyes every time the commercial is shown on television with mention of “the table of brotherhood” set across the United States speaking toward hope for equality.
The dedication of King’s memorial will take place on August 28; marking the 48th anniversary of King’s historic “I have a dream” speech.
Sorry loyal CEO reader Nicole, no Kim Hodashian wedding posts here!
