It doesn't look like Martin Luther King
Seeing the Nov. 25 front-page photo of workers erecting a statue of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. at the King memorial being built on the Tidal Basin, I thought it was a statue of Buddha. It does not look like King. The folded arms seemed an odd way to depict a man who embraced everyone with open arms.
Was it impossible to create a statue showing the great civil rights leader at his finest hour, delivering the “I have a dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on Aug. 28, 1963, one of the most memorable days in the history of the United States?
