Creating Beloved Community
What does it mean to be free? Free to question, free to explore, free to imagine, free to create… What would it take for all students to feel free? I think it starts with being in community with our students. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. imagined a “beloved community”, conceptualizing a world where people would bond on the basis of shared humanness.
