On January 13, State Senator Sal DiDomenico attended the unveiling of “The Embrace” bronze sculpture at Boston Common. Attendees included the family of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., elected officials and leaders from across Massachusetts and the country. This beautiful memorial commemorates the legacies of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Coretta Scott King, who met and studied here in Boston. The sculpture depicts their embrace after MLK received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964.
“It was an absolute honor to witness the unveiling of this beautiful and important sculpture,” said Senator DiDomenico, who is Assistant Majority Leader of the Massachusetts Senate. “Their legacy lives on today and every day because of the sacrifices they made to advance civil rights, combat racism and discrimination, fight for equity, and preach love for each other. I am proud that we have such an important memorial in our community that reminds us of the equitable and inclusive world we must continue to work toward.”
