tags: civil rights, MLK
Georgia's Stone Mountain, a site that once hosted Ku Klux Klan cross-burnings and remains a home for Confederate tributes, will soon be adding a very different symbol: a tower in honor of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
According to CNN affiliate WSB, the tower will feature a replica of the Liberty Bell and give literal representation to a line from King's "I Have a Dream" speech: "Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia."
The Stone Mountain Memorial Association, the authority that maintains the mountain and surrounding Stone Mountain Park, said in a statement that the "King Monument Bell" will "facilitate a more complete telling of the mountain's history and an expansion of the park's educational offerings."
