As we approach his day, Monday, January 21st, you have the opportunity to take time each day to reflect, "Are you a drum major for justice?"
The title Drum Major for Justice is taken from one of Dr. King’s sermons, which he gave the same year he was assassinated. In that speech, Dr. King talks about his life and how he hopes to be remembered:
“If any of you are around when I have to meet my day, I don’t want a long funeral. And if you get somebody to deliver the eulogy, tell them not to talk too long. Every now and then I wonder what I want them to say. … Yes, if you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice; say that I was a drum major for peace. I was a drum major for righteousness.”
