The unveiling ceremony recently for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. statue was low-keyed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but was attended by mayor of the Southern US city, Keisha Lance Bottoms, who performed the ribbon-cutting honours.

The work took two years to complete and Watson, who was selected to sculpt the statue of the US civil rights icon, expressed satisfaction that the task was completed to the approval of people of Atlanta.

‘Atlanta’s brand is the civil rights movement’ as the city pays tribute to leaders with art initiative. Check out the video below.
