Drum Major for Justice Gala Honors Sybrina Fulton, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Evelyn G. Lowery: Photo Recap

Last week (April 4th), I attended a beautiful gala honoring Sybrina Fulton, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Evelyn G. Lowery for their AMAZING contributions to our community.  The event was presented by the SCLC/Women’s Organizational Movement for Equality Now, Inc. and was held at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.

Mykelti Williamson and Mo Ivory served as co-hosts and the evening was filled with special presentations, tributes, awards and celebration.  I was deeply moved as Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin gave her tribute.  She said, “I don’t pretend to understand why this happened to my son.  My prince was not able to become a king… but I depend on my heavenly father’s purpose and plan.”
