"My children aren't going to get this in a classroom," said Lola Martin, left, of Queens, N.Y., of the history evoked by the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C. Here she poses for a picture at the memorial with Ron Smith of Washington, D.C. on Monday, Aug. 22, 2011, the day the memorial opened to the public. "This memorial is my ancestors' blood," said Smith. The two are members of brother and sister social fellowships, Groove Phi Groove and Swing Phi Swing, respectively, and just met for the first time but decided to come down to the memorial together.
