Even though the official dedication of the new Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial was cancelled due to Hurricane Irene, thousands of people gathered Sunday to see the newest addition to Washington, DC’s National Mall.

Like Dr. King, the memorial projects a bold presence and a sense of dignity that was clearly felt among the visitors. Jordan and I were fortunate to be there yesterday to witness this impact firsthand, on the 48th anniversary of the “I have a dream” speech – delivered just footsteps away in 1963 to a crowd of over 200,000.

The geographical significance of Dr. King’s memorial is a statement in itself. The fact that the statue stands tall between the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials was done to create a visual “line of leadership.”

Messages given throughout Dr. King’s career are engraved on the memorial, reminding us of how deeply inspired he was by his faith. We posted some of our photos of the new memorial on the Jordan Sekulow Show Facebook page, specifically a photo of this quote from Dr. King (quoting Amos 5:24):

We are determined here in Montgomery to work and fight until justice runs “down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream.”

Dr. King’s unforgettable words of unity were vital in bringing the social change our country desperately needed to bring us closer to equality. Today, we were honored to have Dr. Alveda C. King on the Jordan Sekulow Show. She is the daughter of late civil rights activists Rev. A.D. King and Naomi Barber King, growing up “in the civil rights movement led by her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.” Currently, Dr. King is a Pastoral Associate and Coordinator of African American outreach of Priests for Life.

If you missed the show, I encourage you to listen to it online.
