I have a dream

50 years ago, on April 4, 1968,  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee. To keep his dream alive, 50 identical statues were placed from Washington to Amsterdam on locations that refer to slavery and places that let us remember how important it is to end racism and fight for equality, regardless of gender, religion and race. History may not be forgotten. The statues are an ode to Martin Luther King and everybody who continues his nonviolent mission. On this website you find the people, locations and organizations who are part of this network exhibition. Keep the dream alive!
