Martin Luther King was an agent of peace and change, and this original 20x24" charcoal-on-board original by Robert Stephen Simon honors the civil rights leader with the following message in the lower right corner: THIS PORTRAIT IS DEDICATED TO MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR., TO HIS DREAM OF A BELOVED COMMUNITY, AND TO THE SELFLESS ACTIVISTS WHO BROUGHT THAT DREAM CLOSER FOR ALL OF US. King's January 15 birthday was designated as a national holiday in 1986, 18 years after his assassination.
