SHOW NOTES: Alright. I didn't plan on talking about this, but I have to. Most people who see this monument see two sets of arms and hands embracing each other. And it's based on a beautiful photo of Dr. King and Coretta embracing each other after he won the Nobel Peace Prize.

But other people swear they see a hand holding a penis. And it's true, that from one angle, if you are already thinking that, it's hard to un-see it.

Let me unpack and explain it all.
