LITTLE ROCK — Little Rock School District Superintendent Dexter Suggs will serve as the grand marshal in an annual event honoring the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.

A march-parade, or marade, will take place at 10 a.m. Monday in Little Rock. The marade begins at 33rd and Chester streets and ends at the state Capitol, where a commemorative ceremony is scheduled to begin at noon.

The event is sponsored by the Arkansas NAACP.

Other events are planned throughout Arkansas to mark the holiday. In Pine Bluff, Gov. Mike Beebe is scheduled to speak at an event at the city's convention center.

King was born Jan. 15, 1929, and the federal holiday is the third Monday in January.
