Our Beloved Community: A Conversation with Martin Luther King III moderated by Brandon Terry, John L. Loeb Associate Professor of the Social Sciences

Thursday | February 2, 2023 | 5:00pm


During the month of February 2023, the Faculty of Arts & Sciences will be featuring programming to celebrate the legacies of Dr. Martin Luther King & Coretta Scott King Celebration. This year’s celebration will center on MLK’s vision of Our Beloved Community and the lifelong work of Coretta Scott King as its architect and visionary. Our Beloved Community foregrounds non-violent resistance to promote global fellowship among all people, in which all poverty, hunger, and homelessness have been eradicated and that all forms of discrimination, bigotry, and prejudice are eliminated. It is a time in which adversaries enter a period of reconciliation, redemption, and resolution in the spirit of friendship and goodwill.

Our marquee event for this celebration will feature Martin Luther King III. With the past two years’ astounding display of social injustice, violence, and confusion around the pandemic, perhaps at no other time in recent history has our world needed the clear thinking and solutions-oriented voice of civil rights advocate and global humanitarian Martin Luther King III.
