Martin Luther King Jr. is carved out of stone as part of the new memorial.

A new memorial on the National Mall in Washington, DC that honors Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is now open to the public.

The Memorial is made up of distinct and significant parts including the Stone of Hope, the Mountain of Despair, and a wall of quotes. 

This is the first memorial on the National Mall that is devoted to a person who is not a war hero or President.
