Martin Luther King Jr. High School is inviting the community and organizations across the Detroit area to participate in its second annual Legacy March honoring the slain civil rights leader.

The district says the march will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Januaryt 17 at the school on Lafayette.

That date falls on the federal holiday honoring King, for whom the school is named.

The theme of the march is "Educating the Nation - The Legacy is Alive."

About 3,000 people took part last year.

Organizations are invited to bring banners to march as a group.

The school will host a program and exhibits of civil rights artifacts for people unable to march.

King was shot to death in 1968 on a motel balcony in Memphis, Tennessee.
