President Bill Clinton and the South Florida community turned out in full force at the newly renovated Fontainebleau Miami
to support the Washington, DC Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation. President Clinton received the Memorial Foundation's "Humanitarian Award" and served as the keynote speaker while the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, through its donation of $1 million to the Memorial, served as the lead dinner sponsor.
"As we approach what would have been Dr. King's 80th birthday, we can be proud of the progress we've made as a nation to lift racial barriers and form a more perfect union," President Clinton said. "Never before have we had the power we have today to make Dr. King's dream a reality, and together, we can build a more just and equal world for future generations."
