"Revelation" monument is a testament to the powerful words of Martin Luther King Jr.

The second largest memorial to Martin Luther King Jr. in the United States was built in San Francisco in 1993 and is called “Revelation.” This moving tribute to one of the most important people in American history sits in Yerba Buena Gardens behind a 50’ x 20’ foot waterfall that creates a sonic experience meant to block out the sounds of the world outside and induce reflection.

Quotes from Dr. King’s speeches are etched on glass panels and are translated into 15 different languages. Among these quotes is one that defines a compassionate society: “I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits. I believe that what self-centered men have torn down men other-centered can build up.”

We hope you enjoy a day of celebration and reflection.
