Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Reflection Site/Plant Red Flowers for King


The Corner of MLK Blvd and 2nd Street map


The Reflection Site will be a rallying point for those who want to understand Dr. King’s impact on Memphis and the reasons for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. being in the city.

The design of this public space will be one for reflection and meditation regarding the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The space will be designed to be a point of reference to understand why Dr. King was in Memphis and how his presence affected our city, its people and the movement.
