King sculpture dedication speech

Rev. Dr. Bernard LaFayette Jr., a member of Dr. King’s inner circle, addresses a large gathering inside English Chapel during the dedication and speech commemoration.

A SRO crowd of nearly 500 people attended the program. The event was held in the chapel due to cold and wind, but concluded at the site of the sculpture where it was unveiled.

The bronze sculpture, made by artist Tad McKillop, is located between Taft Memorial and the Law Building.
