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.
