ABC News' Sunlen Miller reports:

President Obama will start his day be meeting with participants in the 1968 Sanitation Strike, their first visit to the White House. Afterwards the Department of Labor will convene an induction ceremony of all participants of the Memphis Sanitation Strike into the Labor Hall of Fame. 

The First Family will travel to Cape Canavelral, Florida to watch the launch of the space shuttle Endeavor at Kennedy Space Center.  The Obamas will first tour the Orbiter Processing Facility (OPF), a large hangar where space shuttle orbiters are maintained, tested and inspected between flights.  They will watch a tile and water demonstration showing how the shuttle’s tiles can retain water.  The Obamas will then see a close-up view of the landing gear from beneath the nose of the Atlantis shuttle. 

The First Family will watch the launch with NASA Director Charles Bolden, Jr. and astronaut Dr. Janet Kavandi.

Mr. Obama will then travel to Miami to deliver the first of three commencement addresses this graduation season at the Miami Dade College.

The president will return to Washington, DC in the evening.
