WASHINGTON (AP) — Caroline Kennedy is joining the lineup of speakers commemorating the 50th anniversary of the civil rights March on Washington at the Lincoln Memorial.

Organizers say Kennedy, the daughter of President John F. Kennedy, will speak Wednesday, along with Lynda Johnson Robb, the daughter of President Lyndon Johnson.

Other speakers will include show business personalities Oprah Winfrey, Forest Whitaker, Jamie Foxx, President Barack Obama and former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter. Performers will include singers BeBe Winans, LeAnn Rimes and the girl group Identity4Pop, among others.

The "Let Freedom Ring" commemoration is scheduled to run for five hours.

Bell-ringing commemorations are also planned across the U.S. at more than 100 churches and other sites in almost every state.
