The Martin Luther King Memorial on the National Mall of Washington, DC, is dedicated to the first person of color, first person for peace, and first person with no public or government position, etc. The values this person represents—democracy, justice, equal rights, hope, and love—are ever more relevant to the advance of human civilization of our own society and those of the whole world. The unique memorial style also sets it apart from all the other memorials on the National Mall of Washington, DC. Its central piece, the Stone of Hope, is the first granite statue, the tallest, and installed outdoor. It was designed, carved, and installed by a Chinese master sculptor, Lei Yixin.
