Last Friday, a new permanent monument was unveiled on Boston Common. It’s called The Embrace, and it honors the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr and his wife, Coretta Scott King, who met right here in Boston as college students in the 1950s.

WBUR Morning Edition Host Rupa Shenoy had the chance to see the Embrace before its unveiling. She joins The Common to describe the experience.

This episode features Rupa Shenoy's interview with Embrace Boston Executive Director, Imari Paris Jeffries.
