Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial

Some last-minute sightseeing around the Mall before I fly home.

 

I am visiting the newest memorial on the Mall, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, dedicated in 2011.

 

2013 is the 50th anniversary of King's "I Have a Dream" speech, right here on the Mall. It is also fitting that 2013 is also the beginning of the second term for America's first black President, which would not have been possible without King's activism paving the way. My visit to the nation's capital has been precisely to witness President Barack Obama's second inauguration in person.
