Forty-six years ago on April 4th, 1968, a sniper’s bullet cut short the life of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

For 35 years, the Atlanta based SCLC Women Inc. organization has honored individuals with the Drum Major for Justice Awards in King’s honor.

The awards were the idea of Evelyn Lowery who alongside her husband; the Rev. Joseph Lowery, worked in the civil rights movement with King.

This year’s awards event will be without its founder.

Mrs. Lowery died last September 26th at the age of 88.

WABE’s Rose Scott reports this time, Evelyn Lowery is among the honorees.
