MLK Jr. Memorial Dedication in Washington,DC

The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, DC will be dedicated on October 16. The monument will be a lasting tribute to Dr. King’s legacy.  The dedication ceremony itself will be preceded by a weeklong series of events to celebrate Dr. King’s legacy. The dedication takes place on the 48th anniversary of his “I Have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial. The Memorial is located on Independence Avenue, southwest of the World War II Memorial.

The dedication will have both unticketed public viewing areas as well as reserved tickets available through a ticket lottery.  This online ticket lottery is open until May 31, 2011.

According to  www.MLKMemorial.org “The King Memorial is intended to be personally transformative for visitors, building a sense of commitment to the promise of positive change and active citizenship. Drawing from Dr. King’s own rich metaphorical language, the themes of “the Man, the Movement and the Message” are intertwined into a larger experience of place.”
