The Embrace

post-image

A 19-ton bronze depicting Martin Luther King, Coretta Scott King and a love that helped change the world, has inspired praise, jokes and bile. The city of Boston unveiled a new memorial sculpture in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King. The reception for the 22-foot statue has been decidedly mixed — ranging from enthusiastic plaudits to consternation and outright jeers. The monument, by artist Hank Willis Thomas, is meant to honor the relationship between the Kings. It was inspired by a 1964 photograph of the couple hugging, after King had won the Nobel Peace Prize.
