The marker is the first of a series of commemorations leading up to the 50th anniversary of King's assassination.
Rev. Jesse Jackson faced doubts and death threats when he ran for the White House. He also inspired some notable young politicians.
The reverend claimed he knew nothing about Jean-Marie Le Pen before they met over the weekend.
Jackson called for "bold comprehensive change" in the Chicago PD and in the criminal justice system.
