HAMPTON, Va. — On April 4, 1968, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was shot and killed while standing on a balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee.

To mark 51 years since that day, people marched in Hampton.

The Hampton branch of the NAACP hosted Thursday's remembrance. They marched across the Martine Luther King Memorial Bridge, onto Fort Monroe.

This was the first march across the bridge since it was named after King.

Organizers want this to be an annual event.
