Lincoln Memorial

In preparation for President's Day/Lincoln's Birthday, Studio 360 dedicated an entire show to the Lincoln Memorial. One guest called it the most sacred secular spot in the District. Another described the time when President Nixon visited it at 4am and talked for 45 minutes with protesters who were there.

The Lincoln Memorial is symbolic of America's promise. It is symbolic of America's vision, but it is also symbolic of America's contradictions and complexity.
