Description
Situated at 1964 Independence Avenue, Washington DC, the Martin Luther King Memorial was constructed in 2011, and inspired by the quote "Out of a Mountain of Despair, a stone of hope", taken from Martin Luther King's famous "I have a dream" speech. It was built to honour the iconic Civil Rights activist, and the address signifies the year in which he led thousands in a Civl Rights demonstation during what came to be called the 'March on Washington', and the year in which the Civil Rights act was passed. Ingame, the MLK Memorial provides a +10% boost to global Great Person generation, +5 Happiness with Freedom, and requires Computers.

Requires the Gods & Kings expansion pack, and credit to Co-author Sukritact for the icon

Suez is definitely on the horizon, especially with the new Trade system!

What chance of having The Suez Canal as a world wonder on here. I would love to see it and add to my wonder collection. :) I actually crossed The Suez Canal heading to Cairo,Egypt.

Never would I expect to see such backlash for such a great person. Unbelievable. I think I saw someone refer to him as a Communist. Ummm.... He was quite conservative and was a registered Republican.

now that I got started, people forget that it was under Bill Clinton who managed to get our debt levels down, and if he had handed over to Gore, our national debt wouldn't be 123 % of GDP. Petraeus saved a botched war from complete disaster.

@leytelj: There people go again. Even though you are mentioning that great men have flaws, why you mention JFK's transgressions without mentioning what made him a great and inspirational leader in the first place? He was a war hero who almost singlehandely saved half a dozen or more men when his PT Boat went down. He set up the Peace Corps so that American youngsters could get actively involved in developing countries. Most of all, he and his brother prevented the Cuban Missile Crisis from turning into a nuclear holocaust. The nutters in the Pentagon were for going right in. If it wasn't for Jack and Bobby, none of us would be here.

Nice response to johnnynesbit.

A rather large number of historical figures admired today for one reason or another were guilty of drinking to excess, womanizing, or both -- notably John F. Kennedy, who achieved his greatest prominence and was assassinated in close to the same timeframe as MLK.

Maybe you're thinking of Malcolm X, since Martin was never a Black supremacist, and actually preached against the idea that any race of people were or should be superior to any other. Malcolm on the other hand did espouse Black supremacy... though even in his case, the label only applied during the years he spent as part of the "Nation of Islam" sect, before he underwent a second conversion to traditional Islam during his hajj (pilgrimage) to Mecca. He was not a Black supremacist when he was known as Malcolm Little prior to his conversion to "Nation" Islam, nor after his second conversion after which he took the name El-Hajj Malik El Shabazz.
