Beloved Community Project

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. popularized the phrase “beloved community” to represent his vision for societies that embrace cooperation, unity, and connection. To honor and apply this bold idea, Salt Lake Community College’s School of Arts, Communication and Media created the Beloved Community Project to facilitate explorations of Dr. King’s concepts and create dialogue across communities and participants through a number of dedicated pathways.
