Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s way with the written word, in the landmark speeches and sermons he wrote, was key to his impact as an orator and leader. These writings are highlighted in Fragments, a permanent installation created by Pentagram for the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta. The installation features passages from King’s handwritten speeches and letters, incised in metal and illuminated by light, showcasing the power, beauty and eloquence of King’s language and its importance to his message.
