Memorial monument erected in the memory of Dr. King.
North inscription: "Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or the darkness of destructive selfishness. This is the judgement. Lives most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?"
East inscription: "Non-violence is a powerful and just weapon. It is a weapon unique in history which cuts without wounding and enables the man who wields it. It is a sword that heals..."
West inscription: "True peace is not merely the absence of tension, it is the presence of justice."
South inscription: "Yes, if you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice: say that I was a drum major for peace: I was a drum major for righteousness. And all of the other things will not matter... I just want to leave a committed life behind."
Monument Artist: Lisa Reinertson, completed in 1989.
