Guided tour of Washington
(focuses on the influence of the African Americans who lived and worked in the area.)
Opened 48 years after Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, the MLK Memorial stands 30 feet high. Dr. King’s likeness is carved into the Stone of Hope, emerging from two boulders, which started as one and represent the Mountain of Despair. Together, they are meant to represent the stirring words of Dr. King’s speech. On the visible side of the Stone of Hope, the words “Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope,” a line from Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, is cut into the stone. Visitors enter through the Mountain of Despair and tour the memorial as though moving through Dr. King’s struggles before ending up in the open freedom of the plaza.
A favorite stop at the NMAAHC is the 'Lunch Counter'
(On February 1, 1960, four African American college students sat down at a lunch counter at Woolworth's in Greensboro, North Carolina, and politely asked for service. Their request was refused. When asked to leave, they remained in their seats.) Here each person has the opportunity through interactive monitors to decide what they would do when faced with a series of choices.
