Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., the 39-year-old Nobel Prize winning leader of the civil rights movement, is being honored today in a number of events in cities across the nation, forty years after his assassination on April 4, 1968. The Associated Press reports that thousands of people turned out in Memphis for a march to the Lorraine Motel, where King was assassinated, and Presidential candidates Hillary Rodham Clinton and John McCain are set to take part in commemorative events in Memphis later today.
