The celebration of the Civil Right Icon: late Rev. Martin Luther King

"The memorial sits on the National Mall between memorials honoring Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson. It includes a 30-foot (9-meter)-tall sculpture of King and a 450-foot (137-meter)-long granite wall inscribed with 14 quotations from his speeches.The sheer size of the sculpture of King sets it apart from nearby statues of Jefferson and Lincoln, which are both about 20 feet (6 meters) tall, though inside larger monuments. Sunday's dedication ceremony will mark the 48th anniversary of the March on Washington and King's famous "I Have a Dream" speech. President Barack Obama, the first black U.S. president, is scheduled to speak at the dedication." AP
