Drum Major for Justice Awards Dinner and Golf Classic records, 1982-1996
Boxes 11 - 16

Scope and Content Note

The series consists of the records and planning files of the Drum Major for Justice Awards Dinner and Golf Classic from 1982-1996. Files contain correspondence, committee information and meeting minutes, drafts of programs and other promotional material, mailing lists, and participant biographies. The Drum Major for Justice Awards Dinner is held annually on the anniversary weekend of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination. The name of the award derives from King's February 1968 speech, "The Drum Major Instinct," in which he said, " Yes, if you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice." Each year, civil rights and community leaders are recognized for their service and achievements in categories such as business, labor, government, communications, arts, and sports. Awardees include both well-known national leaders and local community activists.

The subseries also includes the records and planning files of the Drum Major for Justice Annual Golf Classic. Files contain correspondence, committee information and meeting minutes, mailing lists, and participant information. The golf tournament primarily was a fundraiser for SCLC/W.O.M.E.N.'s scholarship program. Over time, both the date of the competition and its name changed. For the purposes of the subseries title, the golf competition is called Drum Major for Justice Golf Classic, but folder titles within the subseries reflect the name changes.
