Martin Luther King had a dream and today is the holiday set aside to remember his dream. Regardless of ethnicity or belief system, we owe it to ourselves to reflect on Dr. King's message.For the first time ever, we are publishing the same photo twice. As we looked through our photographs, we simply could not find another one more appropriate than this one to feature on the Martin Luther King Holiday. Besides, we have so many new readers with whom we would like to share this photo.
The bust, made by Wilbur Lee Map in 1994, is located on the southeast corner of South Elm Street and Martin Luther King Drive. The plaque on the statue reads, "Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was scheduled to speak at AME Zion Church in Greensboro (a few blocks from here) on April 4, 1968. He canceled his visit to remain in Memphis where he was assassinated on that day." As we watched this 55 second video clip of Dr. King's final speech, we are struck by how exacting this bust captures his facial features in his final hour of life.
Finally, Seattle Daily Photo has a great tribute to MLK today!
