Soles of Martin Luther King Jr.

Two Feet on the Ground Movement

Two feet on the ground, MLK Jr walked & people walked with him. That was an inspiration. If we all walk, hand-in-hand, peacefully determined, if we emulate those footsteps: true change WILL occur.

    WASHINGTON, DC, January 20, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- LA based Artist and Anthropologist Danny Serfaty installs bronze castings of Martin Luther King Jr's soles of his shoes at monumental turns of the civil rights movement. Today Serfaty, who specializes in bronze work, installs a pair of footsteps at the base of the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial in Washington DC, risking arrest.

Completed installs are centralized in the South, beginning at the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, AL on Martin Luther King Jr day and continue through Montgomery, AL; Atlanta, GA; and Greensboro, NC.

The footsteps are a literal representation of the steps that Dr. Martin Luther King and many others have already taken; as well as a call to action. Over the next several weeks, the artist will install a total of 34 castings and create a documentary of the journey--serving as a reminder that we can unite our nation and achieve equal rights through peaceful and nonviolent means.
