Nation honors MLK Jr. on day of Obama inauguration
ATLANTA (AP) — The nation was honoring civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday — the same day it celebrated the inauguration of the first black president to his second term.
A quirk in the calendar pushed President Barack Obama's public swearing-in in Washington onto the national holiday honoring the slain civil rights leader.
In Atlanta, an annual commemorative service was held at Ebenezer Baptist Church, where King preached. The Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference was the keynote speaker, marking the first time a Latino leader served in the role.
