MLK's life and legacy honored in DC

People across the D.C. region and across the nation honored the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. Monday.

The tributes began at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial near the National Mall with a ceremony, a choir, and a wreath laying. An annual parade and peace walk was also will be held in the southeast.

Monday would have been King’s 94th birthday. He was born on Jan. 15, 1929, and was killed at age 39. He helped drive passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965.
