Bells pay musical tribute to Dr. King's legacy

Bells will be rung at 4:01 p.m. Wednesday at various churches and other institutions in Los Angeles County as part of a worldwide effort to recognize the 50th anniversary of the assassination of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.

"He talked about a revolution of values", King said. He lived and died in a nonviolent way. "We need to keep his memory alive".

McGill said that, 50 years after King's death, people still seek his legacy.

"We will be launching this initiative to that young people can use nonviolence to resolve conflicts as the students, the high school students, are doing", he said, referring students from Parkland, Florida, and their push against gun violence following the deadly February 14 shooting at their school.

Marking the anniversary of the assassination, President Donald Trump issued a proclamation in honour of the slain leader, saying: "In remembrance of his profound and inspirational virtues, we look to do as Dr. King did while this world was privileged enough to still have him".

"I'm very excited about the future", King said. That's unacceptable. We must do better.

"I remember being extraordinary depressed and angry", said Bill English, a civil rights advocate.

Yolanda, the eldest granddaughter of the civil rights icon, made her name known last month when she carried on King's legacy by speaking passionately about gun control at the March for Our Lives rally in Washington, D.C.

Given Idlewild's history during the 1968 Sanitation Strike, this made for the flawless backdrop fro a day dedicated to Dr. King's legacy.

"It brings me to a place to pause and say, where do we go from here?" said English.

"It's surprising and kind of overwhelming", said 17-year-old Charmaine Washington.

He and his brother learned while watching the news on television that their father had been murdered.
