At the second-annual Fundraising Dinner and Gala of the Dr. Martin Luther King Parade Foundation in Tampa, Fla., Titus O’Neil was named a Drum Major for Justice for his family and community contributions.
This past Monday before Raw in Memphis, O’Neil visited room 306 of the Lorraine Motel, standing on the exact spot where Dr. King was tragically assassinated in 1968. O’Neil noted he could feel the presence of the civil rights leader there, making tonight’s honor even more special.
The 29th annual Martin Luther King Day Parade in Tampa is set to boast more bands and floats than any in the city’s history.
