The flowering forest won’t end when the planting does next month. Over the course of five years, it will be extended with hundreds more blooming trees throughout Freedom Park. The flowering shrubs including dogwoods, redbuds and magnolias will tie together John Lewis Plaza, The Carter Center and The King Center.
“Congressman Lewis sowed seeds of hope and equity. His life’s work was an undaunted fight for civil and human rights — without prejudice or exception,” National Center for Civil and Human Rights’ head of programs and exhibitions, Dr. Calinda Lee said in part in a statement.
