It was 48 years from march to memorial. August 28, 2011 will mark the dedication of the national memorial to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
For more than a decade, the men and women of The Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial Foundation, Inc. have worked tirelessly at campaigning and fundraising in Washington, D.C. to bring this project to fruition.
To activate the residents of Greenville County in support of this exciting occasion, MLK Dream Weekend and the Dream Builders Group, a capstone project of the Diversity Leaders Initiative at the Riley Institute, have joined together to create Dream Builders Project.
This is a memorial to remind each of us of The Dream. It will preserve for us and future generations the life and legacy, the lessons and sacrifices that Dr. King left for us to follow.
This is a memorial for all dreamers. Dr. King’s message of democracy, justice, hope and love is something that every American can and should embrace. While remembering his dream, we should also be inspired to follow the dream inside our own hearts.
