BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

The city of Bethlehem is paying tribute to Dr. King with the annual Martin Luther King Civil Rights Movement March on Monday.

It started just before noon at 316 Brodhead Avenue and ended at Martin Luther King Park on Carlton Avenue.

The park is the site of memorials for both Dr. King and his wife, Coretta Scott King.

Immediately after the ceremony in Martin Luther King Park, a reception was held at the St. Bernard's Beneficial Society at 333 Brodhead Avenue.
