drum major

There's a bit of controversy regarding one of the quotes inscribed on the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial on the Tidal Basin. It was abridged, and made Dr. King sound a bit arrogant to some. The full context of the quote in question is, "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. And all of the other shallow things will not matter." 

This photo was the final shot on my roll of black and white. I'll be posting more of them this week. Enjoy!

I was actually there this past weekend and saw the quote.

I saw your photo, and it reminded me that I needed to post my shots. It's been a busy life lately.
