A must see beginning at the end of August in the Washington, D.C. area is the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial.
The memorial is a four-acre plot on the north east corner of the Tidal Basin within the area of the Jefferson memorial and north of President Roosevelt’s memorial. It celebrates the life and accomplishments or Dr. King and will include a 450-foot inscription wall with numerous inspirational quotes by Dr. King engraved in granite. In addition, the memorial will include the “Mountain of Despair” and the “Stone of Hope” after his words, “With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope,” along with a 30-foot sculpture of Dr. King.
The memorial dedication will take place on August 28th, 2011 at 11am as it is the 48th anniversary of the March on Washington and Dr. King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech. Tickets to the dedication must be requested by visiting this site and will be distributed through an online lottery system. Deadline for registering for tickets is 11:59 pm EDT on May 31.
If you wish to see the dedication and were not selected to receive tickets, don’t worry, there will be pubic standing areas available that do not require tickets. The memorial will also be open to the public any time after the 28th.
Witness this historic moment and celebrate the man who dedicated his life in the courageous fight for equality.
