The Nation Remembers Martin Luther King Jr.

Posted: Updated:

Today, the nation will stop to remember Martin Luther King Jr.

The Martin Luther King Foundation laid a wreath earlier at the Martin Luther King Junior Monument in Washington, DC.

In Atlanta, Georgia, a service will be held at Ebenezer Baptist Church where King was Pastor.  

And in Memphis, Tennessee where King was assassinated, an audio recording of an interview with King will be played at the National Civil Rights Museum.  

The recording sheds new light on a phone call President John F. Kennedy made to King's wife, Coretta Scott King, more than 50 years ago.
