I must say that I don't like the memorial to Dr. Martin Luther King that is about to be unveiled on August 28 in Washington, D.C. It is a monumental statue sculpted by Chinese sculptor Lei Yi Xin. The face of Martin Luther King looks, frankly, Chinese, and the monument might be more appropriate for a colossal statue of Mao than the American civil rights leader. The statue looks threatening rather than welcoming, as some have already commented. See the Washington Post site for more information on the monument and its upcoming dedication.
