The Martin Luther King Memorial is the first in Washington DC to honor a man of hope, peace and color. The Memorial was built on a four-acre plot on the north east corner of the Tidal Basin near the Jefferson Memorial and the FDR Memorial. The 30 foot sculpture of Dr. King depicts him gazing into the horizon and concentrating on the future and his hope for humanity. Enjoy the following photos and get a glimpse of the Martin Luther King Memorial.

The Memorial Dedication ceremony has been postponed due to Hurricane Irene. Read more about the special event.
