Support the Creation of the Washington, D.C. Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial

For today’s IHEC Blog post I wanted to highlight the Washington, D.C. Martin Luther King, Jr., National Memorial. This month marks the 42nd anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Washington, DC, Martin Luther King, Jr., National Memorial will honor his life and contributions to the world through non-violent social change. The Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial will be the first on the National Mall to recognize a person of color and a man of peace, not a president or a veteran of war. In 1996 Congress authorized the Memorial Foundation to raise funds to establish a national memorial to honor the legacy of Dr. King on the National Mall. The memorial’s very existence signifies that we as a people believe Dr. King and his legacy deserve this esteemed placement in what can be considered America’s “Hall of Fame.”
