Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Statute to Be Unveiled

There has been a lot of talk across our nation about taking down statues.  And, about taking down confederate flags across the south.  As we move forward to embrace our rich yet shameful, violent and inhumane history; we need to set a policy and move forward.

As we continue to recognize and celebrate our nation’s humanitarians, I am excited about a new statue.  It is the Dr. M.L. King, Jr. statue that will be unveiled at the Georgia State Capitol on Monday, August 28, 2017 at 10:00am. The King statue will be the first one of a non-legislator.  And, being a an international humanitarian who practiced and promoted non-violent protests, it is not an accident that this dedication is occurring  in the midst of the debate  over Confederate statutes.
