Sculpture commemorates Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King

Nearly 60 years after Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. addressed thousands on the Boston Common, city officials unveiled a sculpture commemorating the civil rights leader and his

wife, Coretta Scott King. The bronze sculpture, which is 20 feet tall and 26 feet wide, is the largest monument in the U.S. dedicated to racial equity and is located in

the town where the couple first met. King was studying as a doctoral student in theology at Boston University when he met Coretta, who was studying at the New England Conservatory

of Music. "Boston became the place where they forged a partnership that would change America and make a powerful contribution to the Black freedom struggle. That's what I

see in this beautiful monument," said Martin Luther King III, son of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., during the unveiling. This $10 million sculpture, which took five years

to create, celebrates their life together and compliments the 30-foot King memorial at The National Mall. The Boston piece depicts the arms, shoulders and hands of the

two hugging after King won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 -- a moment special to Black conceptual artist Hank Willis Thomas, creator of "The Embrace." "That was really the

culmination of over a decade of incredibly hard work that not only Dr. King did, but also Mrs. King," Thomas said in an interview with "Good Morning America."
