Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial

The Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial will be dedicated on Washington, DC's National Mall on August 28, 2011, which happens to also be the 48th anniversary of Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech from the March on Washington in 1961. It will be located adjacent to the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial, between the Lincoln Memorial and Jefferson Memorial, and will honor Dr. King's national and international contributions to the American dream. It is a dream he spoke of in terms of democracy, freedom, hope, possibilities, and equal opportunity for all.

Although this will not be the first memorial to an African-American in Washington DC, King will be the first African-American honored with a memorial on or near the National Mall area and only the fourth non-President to be memorialized in such a way. The King Memorial will be administered by the National Park Service.

Have You Seen "The Help" Yet?

Release Date: Now Playing
Genre: Drama
Studio: DreamWorks
Directed: Tate Taylor
Screenplay: Tate Taylor
Produced By: Brunson Green, Chris Columbus, Michael Barnathan
Starring: Viola Davis, Bryce Dallas Howard, Octavia Spencer, Emma Stone

About: Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, “The Help” is a provocative and inspiring look at what happens when a southern town’s unspoken code of rules is shattered by three courageous women who strike up an unlikely friendship.

Synopsis: Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, “The Help” stars Emma Stone as Skeeter, Viola Davis as Aibileen, and Octavia Spencer as Minny—three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s, who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. From their improbable alliance, a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed—even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.

Please help spread the word about this movie! If you know anyone who hasn't seen this movie yet, spread the word and tell them to go see it! We want this one to "sweep" the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards!
