March on Ballot Boxes
Spreading the Word
We created a simple, interactive website that would serve as the main hub for any relevant news or updates regarding the 50th-anniversary event. This website also served as a place to share historically significant pictures, videos and stories related to the original speech.
Using the color palette and typeface of the March on Ballot Boxes logo, we created complementary collateral pieces such as programs and banners to be used at the 50th-anniversary celebration. The program featured a schedule of events and personal letters from several of the speakers. We also created commemorative “I was here in 1966” stickers for attendees to wear if they were present at Dr. King’s original speech.
Remembering a Legacy
Our team helped manage the event, securing public figures such as Former State Representative and CNN Political Commentator Bakari Sellers, the Honorable Congressman James E. Clyburn, Reverend Samuel B. Cooper and Ann McGill of Live 5 News/WCSC. The event included the presentation of the original speech, the unveiling of a historical marker by the SC State Historic Preservation Office and a time capsule presentation by Supervisor Stanley Pasley and Williamsburg County Youth Leadership Group.
TRIO's professionalism, expertise and advice are unsurpassed by any event planner. The team did a great job making this a special event for all who attended and read about this event in the media.W.E. JENKINSON, COMMITTEE MEMBER FOR MLK MARCH ON BALLOT BOXES
