MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis is commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington with a concert.
The museum says the free concert is scheduled to take place Aug. 28 at the museum's outdoor courtyard.
The concert will include performances by "American Idol" contestants Alexis Grace, Keia Johnson and Trump Tight, who are from Memphis.
Representatives from the political, educational and religious communities also are expected to speak.
The museum says the concert is inspired by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have A Dream" speech and the people who attended the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom on Aug. 28, 1963.
