Washington DC is the home of the latest Martin Luther King Jr. statue. The 28 foot statue stands mere feet away from where Dr. King gave his infamous I have a dream speech. The sculpture known as the “Stone of Hope” stands between the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials. Memorial CEO Harry Johnson says that the statue shows King was not just an American hero.
Johnson also added he is confident funds will continue to pour in, as the memorial reaches completion.
Dedication for the memorial is set for August 2011.
