Trip Report visiting the MLK memorial

Jump to last reply

i just returned from Washington, where I went to many museums, as I normally do. However, I also went to the MLK memorial on a Saturday, when the weather was pretty good. It was very moving.

There was a very diverse crowd--some foreigners, and people of all colors. But the most moving to me was seeing the many multiracial families there. Such as the white female partner taking the photo of what appeared to be her black partner, their children, and the man's parents or grandparents. And the many children looking with their parents at the various quotes engraved in the wall, which are also very moving. It was like the vietnam memorial, whre a large part of the experience of going there is witnessing the other visitors and their reactions.

i would say the MLK memorial is a must see.
