MLK standing tall!
The inspiration for the "Stone of Hope" of which Dr. King's is scuplted from is a phrase from his "I have a Dream" speech, "Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope."
Unfortunately, the statue has already created some controversy. Some people contend that Dr. King appears confrontational and his demeanor is grim. Additionally, some individuals are offended that the sculptor is a chinese artist.
What do you think? Does it matter who created the sculpture? Do you think the artists depiction of Dr. King is an accurate one?
Until next time....
