MLK Memorial Unveiled

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial was unveiled, yesterday, on the National Mall in D.C. The granite statue of King stands 30 feet tall and is called "The Stone Of Hope." It's part of a four acre, $120 million tribute to the civil rights leader.

It should be pointed out that the statue is made of Chinese granite and was sculpted by Lei Yixin, a master sculptor from Changsha, China. The statue was made in China and reassembled, here.

Does it sound odd to you that we outsourced this very special project to China?

Get used to it!
