Activists for racial justice and economic equality are joining forces in Denver as part of a national effort to mark the 49th anniversary of the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

Members of Black Lives Matters and the Fight for $15 campaign are holding their first joint action on Tuesday in two dozen cities, including Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas and Denver.

Activists in Denver plan to host a screening of “At The River I Stand”, a movie about King’s efforts to help striking black sanitation workers in Memphis right before his death, followed by a panel of speakers.

The screening is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Landmark Chez Artiste, 2800 S. Colorado Blvd.
