Parades, marches and service projects to honor Martin Luther King Jr.


ATLANTA — The nation paused to remember Martin Luther King Jr. Monday with parades, marches and service projects.
King was born Jan. 15, 1929, and the federal holiday is the third Monday in January.

In Atlanta, a service was planned at Ebenezer Baptist Church, where King was pastor. In Memphis, Tenn., where King was assassinated, an audio recording of an interview with King would 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 more than 50 years ago.
