The Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast and Drum Major Award provides an opportunity for the community to focus on the visions and ideals of Dr. King and to share those values with each other. In these times of incivility, intolerance and insensitivity, it is more important than ever that we keep Dr. King's dreams of equality and social justice at the forefront of our society.
