Wall of Justice: A Space of Reflection

On the Wall of Justice, the multicolored, digitally displayed names of more than half a million people cascade continuously down a 20-by-40-foot screen in a simulation of the water flowing over King’s words on the Memorial outside. Each name was added by someone who has visited the CRMC and made a personal decision to work for justice in their own life. In addition, a large monitor displays “A Civil Community,” a poem compiled by Kwame Alexander from reflections submitted by people from all walks of life who shared their vision for America. Students, teachers, activists, parents and children from across the country contributed nearly 1,000 poems for the new exhibit. It is a testament to people, past and present, who are committed to making manifest the ideals of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion for all.
