    This is an incredible monument to visit as a family. It helps to make the legacy of MLK more real for the younger children in your family.

    I was there for the dedication ceremony and that was very special. Visited again and the feeling of looking at this larger than life statue is truly a sight to behold. Everyone should visit.

    Located at 1964 Independence Ave, the year of the Civil Rights Act. Visitors pass through the "mountain of despair" to reach the "stone of hope".
