1 Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Is Unveiled in Washington

2 Lei Yixin, Chinese artist, who sculpted a 28-ft.-tall statue of Martin Luther King Jr. Dr King belongs to the world

3 "I was a drum major for justice, peace and righteousness"

4 Yes, if you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice. Say that I was a drum major for peace. I was a drum major for righteousness. And all of the other shallow things will not matter. I won't have any money to leave behind. I won't have the fine and luxurious things of life to leave behind. But I just want to leave a committed life behind. (Amen) And that's all I want to say.


6 Three of the 14 quotations inscribed along the memorial wall Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that. --from Strength to Love, a collection of Kings sermons published in 1963

7 Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly –from Kings letter from Birmingham jail, 1963 I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant. – from Kings Nobel Prize acceptance speech, Oslo, 1964
