PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Gov. Jan Brewer is urging Arizonans to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech by ringing bells.

Brewer says in a statement that honoring Wednesday's anniversary with a noon bell-ringing is a way to honor King's call to "Let Freedom Ring." She says the anniversary is a good time to reflect on his message.

The civil rights leader delivered his speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the historic 1963 March on Washington for jobs, economic justice and racial equality. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 and was gunned down by an assassin in Memphis, Tenn., in 1968.

Brewer says King stirred the country with his vision for a brighter future.
