Invites you to join us for

The 16th Annual Drum Major Ecumenical Services


"Now is Still the Time!"

"Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to open the doors of opportunity to all God's children. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quick-sands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood [sisterhood]."
