Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial

After years in the making, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C., was finally unveiled to the public on Oct. 16, 2011. "And so on this day, in which we celebrate a man and a movement that did so much for this country, let us draw strength from those earlier struggles," President Obama said at the public dedication ceremony, which drew a crowd of thousands.
