The First Congregational Church and Highlands Congregational Church will ring their bells today to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who was assassinated 50 years ago today. 

The bell-ringing is part of the 50th Anniversary Commemoration sponsored by the National Civil Rights Museum:

Since the news rippled across the country, the bells will first ring at the National Civil Rights Museum at 6:01 p.m. CST. Bells will chime in the City of Memphis at 6:03 p.m. CST, 6:05 p.m. CST nationally and 6:07 p.m. CST internationally. Please join us in this solemn reflection.

Please join us in a few moments of reflection on the life and work of Dr. King.
