A group of teenagers from Pearl, Miss., walk along highway U.S.61 just south of Memphis, Tenn., Monday on their "March To Memphis" tribute to Martin Luther King., Jr. The students, both black and white, are walking 50 miles from Northern Mississippi to commemorate the 50 years since Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated in Memphis on April 4, 1968. They will then participate in a rally and ceremonies at the National Civil Rights Museum, formerly the Lorraine Motel, where King was shot. © Reuters/Karen Pulfer Focht ///Pictures not for publication or reproduction.
