Today marks 50 years since Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. Cities across the U.S., including Houston, are holding events in remembrance of Dr. King.

Garnet Coleman of Houston, Tom Jones, who was part of the Prairie View A&M University a cappella concert choir that performed for Dr. King in Memphis just a few weeks before his death, and Rev. Ed Small of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center of Houston.
