The unveiling of The Embrace monument to Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King on January 13th was a magical event. While the dominant theme was the love of two remarkable people, love of our common humanity and hope for a better world are embodied in the monument itself.

I cannot recall a time when so many people of such diverse backgrounds gathered on the Boston Common to celebrate and acknowledge that, while we still have much to do, our work will not be in vain. As I said after the unveiling, “Let’s hope that visitors to The Embrace and the 1965 Freedom Plaza, honoring Boston’s civil rights heroes from the 1950s to the 1970s, will see in their reflections the endless possibilities of their own commitment to civic life.”
