Martin Luther King Jr. High School sits on the West Side of Manhattan, just west of Lincoln Center, on 64th Street and Amsterdam Avenue. A living memorial to the slain civil rights leader, the high school is a forbidding hulk, set back on a huge concrete plaza. Once you get past the armed guard at the entrance, the interior is far more welcoming, its wide halls festooned with signs and placards that read "brotherhood" and "civil rights." Along the walls, just under the ceiling, run banners with quotes from King's 1963 "I have a dream" speech. Inside a first-floor classroom is an easel with a black-and-white poster showing King, natty in a fedora, orating fiercely.
