King's daughter, the Rev. Bernice King, urged those gathered at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta for the 47th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Annual Commemorative Service to act out against injustice.The Northeast Ohio Media Group reported about 60 people gathered Monday at a recreation center where a Cleveland police officer fatally shot the 12-year-old.The tensions grew after two New York City police officers were shot to death last month by a man who suggested in online posts that he was retaliating for the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson and Eric Garner in New York.Six months after Garner died in a white police officer's chokehold, protests and speeches invoking Garner's name provided a backdrop to King tributes in New York. Earlier in Atlanta, actor David Oyelowo said playing King in the film "Selma" was deeply emotional and a heavy burden to bear.Lewis, who marched alongside King, recalled the man he called his hero a man who is "still a guiding light in my life".
