Nearly four years ago, on October 14, 2014, the installation of the seven foot bronze statue of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was done on the Hackensack River Pathway as it crosses the Fairleigh Dickinson University campus in Hackensack. We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your past support by purchasing a paver or being a sponsor.  We completed Phase II in October, 2016, which added a 36 foot long black granite wall cap to the Monument site, behind the statue.  The polished black granite is engraved with quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  We hope you’ve had a chance to visit the site.
We continue to honor Dr. King and we invite you to join us on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 at 6:30 pm, as we celebrate the 55th Anniversary of the March on Washington. In addition we will reveal the last sponsorship plaque and latest engraved pavers.  Please invite your friends to be part of this movement by purchasing a paver or by your purchase of an an additional one to honor someone and payments by August 6, 2018.   All funds raised will help provide scholarship funds for high school students to encourage development of leadership skills, educational excellence, integrity and to help keep the “Dream” alive.
