The Life and Legacy of MLK

The mural depicts the life and times of Dr. Martin L. King Jr. Our nation's colors of red, white, and blue were chosen for color, fitting for a national hero. The mural starts with Dr. King's house in Atlanta, continues with Dr. King pointing as he gives his famous "I have a dream" speech, and then shows King reciving the Nobel Prize. It finishes with our 44th President Barack Obama as the dream continues.
