Memphis, Tenn. (AP) Hillary Rodham Clinton and John McCain will be taking part in events marking the 40th anniversary of the Martin Luther King assassination.

He's being remembered today as a champion of peace during memorial events in Memphis, where he was gunned down. The events will include a “recommitment march” through Memphis and the laying of wreaths at the site of King's assassination at the
Lorraine motel.

Other tributes are being held around the country. In Atlanta, the Martin Luther King Junior historic site is commemorating the anniversary with the opening of a special exhibit. It chronicles the final days and hours before King's death, as well as his
funeral procession through his hometown five days later.
