3pm – 4:30pm The Drum Major Instinct
We will celebrate community, our voices, and the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through art-making, a children’s book reading and inter-generational program exploring oral histories, spoken word, and basic American Sign Language expressions facilitated by Pickney Productions and the Significant Elders.
Dr. Martin Luther King’s reflective and inspiring sermon The Drum Major Instinct is a clarion call for all times, especially now. Dr. King once said, “If you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice… for peace… for righteousness.”
