I walked round the Tidal basin area on my final day in Washington DC, I thought this was a really good monument, a towering stone MLK looking out over water.
The thing I really liked were reading the quotes from his speeches, which surround the monument on the walls either side. He really was the right man at the right time to push the boundaries for society in the US. Of the quotes some of them were new to me, and it made me wonder what could've happened if he'd have lived, maybe he'd have been the first black US president had he been born 20 yrs later.
The monument is worth the walk, it was pretty empty when I was there and personally I preferred it to the FDR memorial which is just along from it
