MLK Memorial

My other choice for yesterday's Theme Day would have been the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial near the Governmental Building. It was sculpted by New York City native Arthur Silverman when he was in his seventies. Each of the benches in front of the memorial has a plaque with a famous quote from Dr. King.

How cool is that?!?! I didn't know about it. But then again, I have only driven through Baton Rouge once, when I got lost coming back from New Orleans. I missed an exit and ended up on the small country road back to Monroe.
