King Holiday Observance: Be Love Training

Date and Time for this Past Event


visit website


“What is needed is a realization that power without love is reckless and abusive and that love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice. Justice at its best is love correcting everything that stands against love.”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote these words in his last book, ‘Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community?’, which was published in 1967. The ideals shared within the quote are worth exploring to understand the connection between power, justice, and love.

In conjunction with our King Holiday Observance theme and the Be Love movement, The King Center presents a 2-part, in person, and virtual training series. The series will feature a study of Dr. King’s words about power, love and justice, and examine other Kingian teachings that can help us ‘Be Love’ to shift the cultural climate and create the Beloved Community in our homes, schools, workplaces, legislative bodies, and in other areas of life.
