Washington D.C. Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation
This project supports the building of a memorial dedicated to the life and many legacies of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The four-acre memorial, to be built on the banks of the Tidal Basin, is envisioned as a quiet and contemplative space that will complement the site’s sloped topography. It will feature stone and water elements along with excerpts from Dr. King’s writings and speeches selected to highlight themes closely associated with him: democracy, justice, hope and peace.
The site will include a visitor center designed to educate and inspire Americans as well as international visitors. Here, they will learn about Dr. King’s commitment to social justice, his role as a civil rights leader and his use of nonviolent tactics to achieve equality for African Americans.
