About Building the Beloved Community

This is a series of four courses. Sign up for one, two, three, or save money by signing up for all four.


What does it take to work Dr. King’s dream of the Beloved Community, which he believed could “bring about miracles in the hearts of men” and “transform opponents into friends”? Through this interactive online professional development series, educators will learn about the building blocks for community building rooted in justice. Participants will consider how they provide windows and mirrors for students’ identities at school, how to support students in engaging in dialogue across difference, how to grow students’ sense of community through reciprocal relationship building in service-learning, and how to expand a school’s sense of community through collaborations with nonprofit organizations and other schools.


All sessions will be 7:00-8:30pm Eastern (4:00-5:30pm Pacific)

January 17 - The Role of Windows and Mirrors in Building the Beloved Community

January 24 - The Role of Dialogue across Difference in Building the Beloved Community

January 31 - The Role of Service-Learning in Building the Beloved Community

February 7 - The Role of Partnerships and Collaboration in Building the Beloved Community
