The Story began in Boston.
The Embrace digital experience is a self-guided app offering storytelling, first-hand accounts and historical photos and images to visitors.
AN “EYES-UP” EXPERIENCE
This digital experience allows visitors to explore the monument, and the 1965 Freedom Plaza beneath it at their own pace, while learning more about Boston’s civil rights legacy and the incredible contribution of the Kings. The Embrace and the 1965 Freedom Plaza are reminders of the Kings’ high ideals born from struggle—to foster a “beloved community.”
FEEL THE HISTORY & IMAGINE THE FUTURE
We welcome you to hear stories of local civil rights struggles while the Kings made Boston their home; be introduced to civil rights and social justice leaders active in Greater Boston from 1950 –1975; listen to reflections from the artist, Hank Willis Thomas; as well as behind-the-scenes insights on how the incredible sculpture was created.
