Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Opens in Washington D.C.

The Washington Post reports that the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial opens to the public in Washington D.C. today. The design is derived from part of King's famous "I have a dream" speech when he said, "With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope." The memorial sits between the Jefferson and Lincoln memorials.  King, who stood as pillar for civil and human rights and economic justice for all people, is the first non-president and person of color to be honored on the national mall with a monument.
