We have everything you could possibly need at our special Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial page, and more is coming.
The memorial opens at 8 a.m. Tuesday and Wednesday and 9 a.m. Thursday, and it closes at 10 p.m. all week. The memorial will be closed Friday and Saturday while the site is prepared for the official dedication, at 11 a.m. Sunday, when President Obama is scheduled to unveil the “cloaked” statue in front of tens of thousands of visitors.
Our ArtsPost blog has a series of posts about the music of the movement which you’ll want to listen to again and again, we have a story and photos from the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, where Dr. King was assassinated, and we have many interviews with people who made the monument happen, from the artist to the architect to the stone carver from the man in charge to the construction safety manager. And, of course, historic photos.
When you get there, share your own photos by tweeting them with the hashtag #mlkphotos or upload them to this photo gallery. And tell us what you think in the comments section.
