Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. inspired the world to embrace racial equality through nonviolent action. As we honor the contributions of the late civil rights icon during the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, take a look at how artists have interpreted King’s message of peace.—Britt Middleton


Perhaps the most famous of all artistic interpretations of King is his likeness etched into stone at the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial in Washington, D.C.
