The ceremony at the National Civil Rights Museum’s plaza in front of the preserved Lorraine Motel included a wreath-laying at the spot where Revered King fell mortally wounded, as well as remarks by religious and civil rights leaders, including Andrew Young and Jesse Jackson, both of whom were with Martin Luther King Jr. at the motel at the time of the shooting.
