Monday, 18 Jan 2010 06:45 AM

President Barack Obama will spend much of Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebrating the civil rights leader's life and legacy.

Following a Monday morning meeting with senior advisers, the president and first lady Michelle Obama will participate in a public-service event.

Later at the White House, Obama will host a conversation with a small group of African American seniors and their grandchildren on the legacy of the civil rights movement.

In the evening, the president and Mrs. Obama plan to attend the "Let Freedom Ring" concert at the Kennedy Center. The concert features nationally renowned artists and choir members from Washington area churches.
