Participate in the Drum Major Project

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s legacy provides a model to Atlantans and to citizens of the world of how leadership can strengthen communities through inclusion and by uplifting each other.  The Drum Major Project invites individuals and communities engage with each other and participate in planned events to continue fulfilling Dr. King's vision of the "Beloved Community."

Join a community workshop:

In preparation for the procession, a series of collaborative art making workshops are being held. The workshops are forums for diverse communities across Atlanta to come together to express their individual and collective commitment to manifesting Dr. King’s principles of love, peace, kindness, and justice through art.

During these workshops facilitators will lead discussions with participants while making commemorative unity wreaths (which will line the procession route on April 9th) and armbands of hope (to wear during the march).
