Freedom Memorial

History

How Freedom Memorial was created.

We are a small, mighty, impassioned board with the following mission: To commemorate the life and continue the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. & Coretta Scott King, by developing a memorial, programs and initiatives to honor the King Family and address issues of civil rights, world peace and economic equity for all. Our statue was unveiled in Allentown PA January 17th of 2011, and the Martin Luther & Coretta Scott King Memorial is the only statue memorial in the world dedicated to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife Coretta Scott King.
Martin and Coretta were married on June 18, 1953 on the lawn of her parents’ home in Marion, Alabama. Martin’s father, the Reverend King, Sr., performed the wedding ceremony. Mrs. Edythe Bagley, Coretta’s sister, was maid of honor. Reverend A.D. King, Martin’s brother, was best man. The memorial of Dr. King and Coretta is located on Union Street & Martin Luther King Drive in Allentown Pennsylvania. The King Memorial at the Harry A. Roberts Plaza Allentown Pennsylvania.
