A Chicago organization is beginning an annual tradition of honoring Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

The Leaders Network held the first of its celebrations Sunday. It honored Dr. King and Rev. Clay Evans who welcomed Dr. King when he came to Chicago in his push for civil rights.

King's birthday is January 15, and this year the national holiday honoring him falls on January 21.
