Vigil planned for anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr. assassination

Martin Luther King Jr. was slain 44 years ago in Memphis, Tenn. Organizers are planning to honor the civil rights leader’s legacy in a vigil at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Speakers will include Harry Johnson, president of the foundation that built the memorial, Arun Manilal Gandhi, a grandson of Mahatma Gandhi and others, according to the Associated Press.

Tell us: How will you remember King’s legacy? To mark the memorial’s opening last fall, we partnered with SMITH Magazine’s Six-Word Memoir Project and asked you to explain King’s legacy in six words.

Use #MLKin6 to tell us now and we’ll add your thoughts below.
