Dorsey Visits Walk A Mile In My Shoes Display

The initial display, a redesign of two traffic medians, opened to the public at Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and Rodeo Road in Los Angeles. The display features photographs of the shoes of participants of the peace marches and colleagues of Dr. King. Artist Abeles (recipient of the 2013 Fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation) and professional photographer Ken Marchionno photographed the shoes in Atlanta, Georgia, from the collection of Xernona Clayton's Civil Rights Walk of Fame.

A second site has been introduced at Jefferson Boulevard and Rodeo Road. The site occupies 20,000 square feet that has been transformed from a traffic median into a mini-park for visitors. The photographic tiles at this second site feature shoes of local, community-based activists including Dorsey's Principal, Dr. Reginald Sample.
