Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - President Jimmy Carter and Martin Luther King's youngest daughter, Southern Christian Leadership Conference President Bernice King, are among the leaders scheduled to participate in an event in Atlanta marking the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.

The private event is called "America's Sunday Supper," and it's planned for the Carter Center at 6 p.m. Sunday. It will include a recitation of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech by an 8-year-old student.

The event is being organized by the volunteer group Points of Light, the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change and Target.
