50 Martin Luther King statues

On April 4, 2018, it was the 50th anniversary Martin Luther King's assassination. He was shot in Memphis, Tennessee in 1968. To keep his dream alive, 50 identical statues were placed from Memphis 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. This is an ode to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and everybody who continues his nonviolent mission. On this website find the places and people who are part of this network exhibition. Keep the dream alive!
