Description

Martin Luther King Memorial Sculpture
Marsh Plaza was dedicated in 1949, the culmination of the vision and persistence of Methodist minister, Daniel L. Marsh (School of Theology 1908), the fourth president of Boston University (1926-1950). On May 16, 1975, Free at Last, the soaring sculpture by Sergio Castillo was unveiled in memory of one of BU's greatest's alumni, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (GRS '55, Hon. '59) nearly a decade before federal legislation created Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The fifty doves flying in formation represent peace in all fifty states.
