Chicagoans mark anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s death

The Rainbow PUSH Coalition hosted the "Service of Remembrance" at its headquarters on Chicago's South Side.

Chicago remembered Dr. Martin Luther King on Monday, the 48th anniversary of his assassination.

A sample of King's writing, a musical performance, tributes and prayer were all part of an event hosted by the Rainbow PUSH Coalition at its headquarters on Chicago's South Side.

The service ended with a candlelit vigil shortly after 6 p.m. Monday night, the same time that King was shot to death on the balcony of a Memphis hotel.
