This site-specific environmental sculpture resembling a small amphitheater was commissioned as a memorial to civil-rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The sculpture includes eight triangular columns of varying heights; each displays an excerpt from King's writings. It was dedicated on August 28, 1993, thirty years to the day of King's "I Have a Dream" speech in 1963. In 2006, repairs to correct water drainage problems at the site were completed and the sculpture was rededicated.
