Former TED prize winner and prolific French Street artist, JR, recently unveiled a new piece in Washington D.C. JR covered a building with Civil Rights photographer Ernest Wither's image of the "I Am Man" demonstration, the 1968 Memphis sanitation workers' strike, and the last march led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, before he was assassinated in 1968. Hit the thumbs for a closer look at the JR's large-scale piece in our nation's capital.

Update: The mural is located at 1401 T Street, NW
