Long Description:
"The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial is situated behind a majestic waterfall fifty (50) feet high and twenty (20) feet wide which cascades over Sierra granite. The memorial includes back-lit photos from the civil rights movement and twelve shimmering glass panels set in granite and inscribed with Dr. King's inspiring words. The poems are translated into the languages of San Francisco's thirteen (13) international sister cities, as well as African and Arabic dialects.
The memorial is anchored at one end with a carved image of Dr. King and at the other with an image of San Francisco's community leaders during the 20th anniversary of the March in Golden Gate Park. The Memorial embraces Dr. King's vision of peace and international unity, and is the second largest Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial in the United States next to the King Center in Atlanta, GA."

The quote is: "I believe that a day will come when all God's children from bass black to treble white will be significant on the constitution's keyboard."
San Francisco, CA, 1956.
