COLUMBUS, Ohio — A new sculpture inspired by Martin Luther King Jr. was unveiled in Columbus on Monday.

The sculpture is located at the Washington Gladden Social Justice Park at East Broad Street and Cleveland Avenue.

The design for the artwork, called "Our Single Garment of Destiny" was inspired by Dr. King's "Letter from a Birmingham Jail" which was published in 1963.

He wrote the letter while he was in prison after participating in non-violent protests against segregation.
