Across the nation on Monday, people will take a moment or two to reflect on the legacy of the slain civil rights leader, Martin Luther King Jr.
At the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta where King was pastor, there will be a special service and in Memphis, Tenn., where King was assassinated, an audio recording of an interview with King will be played at the National Civil Rights Museum.
The interview is said to shed new light on a phone call between JFK and Coretta Scott King, expressing concern over MLK’s arrest in October of 1960. This call, some historian say, helped JFK secure his presidential win.
