mlk memorial

Today marks the 43rd anniversary of the assassination of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

In the 43 years since King’s assassination, African-Americans have made tremendous progress, and the legacy of Dr. King has continued to live strong.

Today, a short distance from where King delivered his famed “I Have a Dream” speech, a 28-foot-tall statue of the slain civil rights leader has risen as part of a new memorial that will be dedicated in August.

Two years ago, talks began to build this historic memorial on the National Mall for Dr. King. Millions have been raised for this landmark monument which will be dedicated on August 28th, 2011. So far, only $111 million of the $120 million goal has been raised.

We at NewsOne have decided to help this memorial reach its goal with your assistance.

As we celebrate his legacy and his vision of freedom and equality for all mankind, we encourage you to contribute to the memorial today by donating a small portion of only $5 in hopes of meeting the remaining goal and helping to put the final touches on this historic work.
