Description
The monument recalls and honors the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Baptist minister and U.S. civil rights leader. A practitioner of non-violence, this African-American clergyman’s life was ended violently, slain by James Earl Ray, in Memphis, Tennessee, April 4, 1968. This bronze bust, a work picturing the civil rights leader bare-chested, was created by sculptor David Frech and rests atop a granite pedestal. The piece was made by the Polich-Tallix foundry, Rock Tavern, NY. Located in an open setting at Colden St. and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, Newburgh, NY, near the Hudson River, the monument was sponsored by public contribution, an effort led by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Committee. The monument was dedicated January 20, 2007.
