The city next year will install a sculpture at Leighton Plaza downtown depicting figures of the Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh and the Rev. Martin Luther King joining hands, just as they did at a civil rights rally in 1964.
The image of the two civil rights leaders was captured in a famous photo.
The sculpture will be created by Granger-based artist Tuck Langland, a retired Indiana University South Bend art professor.
The news was announced Wednesday afternoon at Leighton Plaza by Mayor Pete Buttigieg, community leaders and Notre Dame representatives.
