West Point Park – Revitalizing Kings Dream
Through the efforts of many, The Martin Luther King Jr. memorial has been unveiled. It’s revelation, exposes the merits of a global man. A man who has crossed barriers through basic human ideals. Today, family, friends and the international community welcome a “freedom” explosion. As his kind daughter recalled his vows at West Point Park, she clearly defined the words that current rebellions should heed. It is non-violence that awakens more than bullets bursting in the air. It is economic solutions that stir the masses to employment – not hypocrisy, indifference and definitely not corruption. The spirit of Martin Luther King Jr. during his dream speech 48 years ago was captured by a select group of photographers, like Francis Miller for LIFE Magazine. It was one of many angles that reflect our own inspirations. Today is a time to kindle that spirit again. Embolden your own collection with memorials to ideals, those that honor yourself along with the honor of community and friendship. For additional information on the memorial, start with a visit to the Center for Nonviolence. Other photographers who have important King photographs: Eisesntaedt, Williams, Ed Clark, and Francis Miller.
