Beloved Community Global Summit


As we witness and are impacted by the many forms of violence devastating the world, The King Center, with Dr. Bernice A. King as our CEO, is convinced that our vision, and corresponding work, are increasingly critical. Our vision is “the Beloved Community, where injustice ceases and love prevails.” Our work includes inspiring and educating global citizens on how to employ the principles and strategies of Kingian Nonviolence to shift the cultural climate.

The 2024 Beloved Community Global Summit, happening virtually Wednesday, January 10 – Thursday, January 11 as a part of our 2024 King Holiday MLK Day Observance, reflects our vision and launches our work for the calendar year.

The Summit, which will stream on The King Center’s social media platforms as well as here on our website, will challenge those who join across the globe to think higher, love deeper, and commit to the multi-faceted work of creating the Beloved Community. This year, the challenge will be lifted in conjunction with exploring the 2024 King Holiday Observance theme, It Starts with Me: Shifting the Cultural Climate Through the Study and Practice of Kingian Nonviolence.

Summit experiences will include panel discussions, interviews, 10–15-minute Summit talks, and innovative video presentations, all focused on examining and arriving at solutions about how we can shift the cultural climate in various areas of society. Guest influencers, artists, civic leaders, activists, and concerned global community members will discuss and share action steps for shifting individually and internally, collectively and civically, and relationally and restoratively.
