After 25 years of planning and fundraising, the Martin Luther King Jr National Memorial opened in August 2011, on the banks of the Tidal Basin. It is the Mall's first memorial dedicated to both a nonpresident and an African American, and pays moving tribute (through quotes taken from a dozen speeches) to one of the world's great peace advocates.
