The Embrace, a 20-foot tall and 40-foot wide bronze sculpture now sits on the Boston Common, the first new memorial in more than a century. The memorial was inspired by the moment Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife Coretta Scott King embraced after he learned he won the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize. We discuss what will The Embrace bring for the future of Boston and the world?
