The Embrace, a 22-foot-tall, 19-ton bronze sculpture that was unveiled last Friday in Boston, shows the arms of Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife, Coretta Scott King, together. It’s a detail taken from a well-known picture of the couple cuddling, and to the artist Hank Willis Thomas, it represents how their love sparked a global movement that altered the course of history.
The monument was erected on property that was formerly a part of a black neighbourhood that was once among the country’s oldest, not far from where King led 22,000 people in a 1965 Freedom Rally. Visitors to the unveiling, some of whom were nearly 100 years old and were active in the civil rights fight, were aware of its significance. According to organisers, several spectators were in tears. Martin Luther King III, a descendant of the Kings, also praised the work, telling CNN that the “artist did a great job.”
However, some internet viewers of the sculpture had a different opinion. They claimed that certain angles in images made one of the civil rights leaders’ arms resemble a penis. Leslie Jones, a comedian, made light of the artwork, saying it resembled the late civil rights activist giving his wife a sex act.
If all that was being discussed was an optical trick, the narrative might have ended there. However, after the artwork was attacked by an unexpected party—Oakland activist Seneca Scott, a former Bay Area labour organiser and Coretta Scott King’s cousin—the dispute quickly took a political turn.
Scott called the sculpture a “egregious example of the woke machine’s callousness and vanity” that would deliver “few, if any, tangible benefits to struggling black families” in a brief editorial that appeared in Compact magazine the morning following the artwork’s opening. He continued, “Statues like these are part of the same performative altruism and purity pageants that are staples of the woke left.”
The outburst won him a front-page article in the right-leaning New York Post and a three-minute live interview with Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson, who grinned as Scott accused the sculpture of wasting money and making fun of those who can’t afford groceries. “That’s exactly right,” Carlson retorted. “It’s a middle finger, not a work of art.”
