Martin Luther King Jr
Painting - Oil On Canvas
On the day before he was assassinated, Martin Luther King Jr. spoke of looking over the Promised Land. "I might not get there with you," he said, "but we as a people will get to the Promised Land." He is shown here in a composition borrowed from Benjamin West in a painting of a similar theme. The angels are William Lloyd Garrison, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Abraham Lincoln, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, and Mahatma Gandhi.
