Dear Commons Community,
Yesterday, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial opened to the public on the National Mall. The official dedication will be on August 28th, 48 years to the day that Dr. King gave his legendary “I Have a Dream” speech. The Washington, D.C. Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial will be the first memorial on the Mall dedicated to an African-American and the first solo memorial for a non-president. He deserves his place with Presidents Abraham Lincoln and George Washington.
Surely Dr. King’s Memorial is another reason to make a visit to our nation’s capital.
