Marc Huff, 35, Denise Huff, 50, Marquise, 11 and Cheyenne Jones, 10, came to see the monument from Cleveland, Ohio.

Marc Huff, 35, Denise Huff, 50, Marquise, 11 and Cheyenne Jones, 10, came to see the monument from Cleveland, Oh.

“We planned the trip a while back but visiting the monument gives it special meaning,” said March Huff. “My mother was raised in the South and she spoke to me about the racial injustices and what people of her time went through to attain their civil rights by peaceful means. It is exciting to see an African American man dedicated in this way.”

Denise Huff said the monument is bringing people from around the world together in a way that the mall has not done in the past. “Dr. King wanted peace for all people. The messages carved in the granite speak to the consciousness of all mankind.
