ΙΥΛ Contribution to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on the National Mall 

The ΙΥΛ legacy includes the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on the National Mall. In 1986, Brothers Alfred Bailey, Oscar Little, Eddie Madison, Harold Navy, John Harvey and George Sealey took on a massive effort to have a memorial erected in honor of Brother Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Many countless hours went into researching this project and preparing documentation for the United States Congress and Senate to grant approval of a bill to erect the memorial. Former Congresswoman Connie Morella, Congressman H. Dixon, Senator Paul Sarbanes and Senator John Warner were the political affiliates who backed the bill. In 1999, the bill was passed to have the King Memorial built on the Tidal Basin adjacent to the Lincoln, Jefferson and Roosevelt Memorials. The dedication ceremony was held on December 4, 2000 and laying of a plaque where the memorial would stand. The memorial would cost in excess of $100 million dollars.
