The Martin Luther King Memorial includes a 450-foot inscription wall featuring 14 quotations from Dr. King's speeches, sermons and writings. A Council of Historians was created to select the quotations. Dr. Maya Angelou, Lerone Bennett, Dr. Clayborne Carson, Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Marianne Williamson and others collaborated during the selection process.
