The Promised Land is a steel piece by metalsmith and Atlanta-based artist Corrina Sephora Mensoff. The title references words from the last speech Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave prior to his assassination, “I’ve been to the mountaintop … And I’ve seen the Promised Land.” The bridge in the center of the piece is modeled after the Edmond Pettius Bridge in Alabama, which was a symbolic obstacle to cross in the civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery. At the end of the road is an equal sign, which was the insignia for CORE, a multi-ethnic activist group during the Civil Rights Movement. A profile of Dr. King is hidden on the right side within the mountain crags. On the left is the profile of Coretta Scott King.
