The Beloved Community Talks (BCT)
Bringing people out of their comfort zone and together for the common good of community.
The Beloved Community Talks (BCT) mission is to create an environment conducive to open, honest and unapologetic conversations that are civil; bringing people out of their comfort zone to promote understanding and to influence equitable change to the national infrastructure. The BCT platform brings together business and community leaders, police officers, politicians, students, businesses, and cultural influencers for open dialogue and practical solutions for local cities and communities. We envision that individuals and communities will find commonalities that bring them together in order to work on initiatives in their respective communities. The BCT provides an environment within communities where people can get to know each other, seeking first to understand and then to be understood.
