JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - Teton Valley high school students are honoring Martin Luther King with a march in Jackson.

Tuesday afternoon’s march will start at the Center for the Arts and end at Town Square and other community members are invited to participate. The Jackson Hole Daily (http://bit.ly/1fVU7i1) reports that Pulitzer Prize-winning author Gilbert King and Jackson Mayor Baron will address the marchers.

King is in Jackson this week to discuss his book “Devil in the Grove.” It’s an account of Thurgood Marshall’s work to fight false accusations of rape against three black men in Florida in 1949.

On Monday, more than 100 people participated in a Martin Luther King Day march to the state Capitol, including Gov. Matt Mead.
