“When Martin Luther King came to Washington in the summer of 1963 he came to hold this nation to its own standards. … He stood not far from here … with thousands gathered around him. His dream spread a message of hope…As we break ground, we give Martin Luther King his rightful place among the many Americans honored on the National Mall. …”
