Martin Luther King: Newcastle University unveils statue

The statue has been created by Nigel Boonham, one of Britain’s finest portrait and figurative sculptors, who spent months researching Dr King before deciding on the statue’s final pose.



Sculptor Nigel Boonham said: “It was a privilege to be asked to make a statue of Dr Martin Luther King Jr – he is a gift to a sculptor.

“I searched for the essence of the man by collecting and studying over 100 black and white photographs as well as listening to his speeches.
