The Beloved Community is a vision that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. popularized during the Civil Rights Movement. King’s Beloved Community is a society based on justice, equal opportunity, and loving our neighbor as we love ourselves. On this Martin Luther King Jr. Day, poets use Michelangelo Lovelace’s painting My Home Town (1998) as a departure point to explore King’s Beloved Community. This painting offers candid commentary on Cleveland’s historical and present state of racial segregation, while providing an optimistic perspective through the figures coming together in the center. The program includes opening remarks by Reverend Dr. Jawanza Colvin, the pastor of Olivet Baptist Institutional Church, a museum trustee, and the inaugural chair of the museum’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee; original poems recited by Cuyahoga County poet laureate Honey Bell-Bey and acclaimed poet Orlando Watson; and a moderated discussion.
