Mayor Fenty didn't have any public events on his schedule yesterday, a rarity. The reason? He and school Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee traveled to Memphis to participate in Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network's national conference, on the eve of the 40th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s death.
D.C. Wire did not have a correspondent at the scene, but fortunately former Washington Post intern Dakarai Aarons, now a staff writer for the Memphis Commercial Appeal, was on hand and filed this report.
