February 2007

The Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation announces the selected quotations from Dr. King's writing, sermons and speeches to be engraved onto the memorial wall. The foundation also announces Master Lei Yixin (pictured) as the sculptor who will carve the image of Dr. King into the Stone of Hope. There is some controversy over the foundation's decision to select the Chinese artist.
