Martin Luther King Jr. Monument

Enlarge image

This page is part of my 1999 entry for an international competition for the design of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington, DC.

I sketched this portrait of Martin, using watercolor and pencil, reflected in a conceptual pond.

The glass portrait of the King Monument—etched on a very large, round glass plate—will be lit from within the tubular frame, glowing from dusk to dawn with eternal radiance and lending a peaceful watch to the night.

This image was used in my poetry chapbook Horizon.

I wrote a poem about this event called "White Boy in Harlem."
