Hillary Clinton plans to be in Memphis on Friday for events commemorating the 40th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination, and has already posted a video tribute on her website.
"Dr. King challenged all of us to stay awake during the great civil rights revolution that was sweeping our country," she says in the tribute. "Today, in 2008, there is still a need for us to remain awake, stay focused and work together to address the challenges we face."
The other Democratic presidential contender, Barack Obama, spoke at King's church in Atlanta, Ebenezer Baptist, in January to mark the civil rights leader's birthday.
