Reading | The Drum Major Instinct: Reading of a Famed MLK Speech (online)


The Drum Major Instinct presents dramatic readings by acclaimed actors of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s The Drum Major Instinct--a powerful, cautionary sermon about the impulse in all humans to be first--for diverse audiences, with the goal of generating powerful dialogue about racism, inequality, and social justice, fostering compassion, understanding, and positive action. These readings are accompanied by original and arranged music composed and conducted by Dr. Philip Woodmore, featuring a choir of diverse singers from St. Louis, Missouri and New York City. On Sunday, February 4, 1968, Dr. King delivered The Drum Major Instinct at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, exactly two months before his assassination in Memphis, Tennessee.

When we lose sight of the past, our ability to see ourselves and to understand one another is diminished. Author Colette Brooks explores the mechanics and malleability of the collective American memory.
