NEW YORK -- The Atlanta Braves will host the Philadelphia Phillies on May 15 in the fifth annual Civil Rights Game.

Major League Baseball made the announcement Thursday. The game at Turner Field will cap four days of events that highlight civil rights history in Atlanta and all over the country.

Braves Hall of Famer Hank Aaron will be honored with a red carpet tribute. All net proceeds from that celebration will be donated to a foundation named in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.
