“The aftermath of nonviolence is the creation of the beloved community so that when the battle is over, a new relationship comes into being between the oppressed and the oppressor.” - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

In 1956 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. presented the idea of The Beloved Community: a global vision of economic and social inclusivity emerging out of love for one another. Sixty-four years later, 2020 has brought personal, social, and institutional injustices to the forefront of our lives.

Today, as we stand on the precipice of change, we ask what can the beloved community look like in this present moment?

For the Spark Talks 2020, Naropa alumnx will share their experiences, stories, ideas, inquiries, research, poetry & artwork as they relate to the Beloved Community :: ReEnvisioned for 2020 and beyond.
