Enduring Legacies

The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial will be dedicated on August 28th in Washington D.C. According to the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial the monument is “a memorial to honor his national and international contributions to world peace through non-violent social change.”

They did so by freezing him in carbonite like Han Solo.

Or at least that’s what the monument calls to mind. Which is further proof 0f the enduring legacy of Star Wars in white culture.
