These issues are stopping the country from developing into the kind of society that Martin Luther King, Jr. fought for during his years as a civil rights activist. We remain stunted from becoming a nation of compassionate people.
So, what can the past tell us about healing the nation? Specifically, how can we address divisions along race, class and political lines?
Martin Luther King Jr.‘s understanding of the role of love in engaging individuals and communities in conflict is crucial today. For King, love was not sentimental. It demanded that individuals tell their oppressors what they were doing was wrong.
I want us to go further. Let’s speak truthfully about the issues and lets find a way to takes steps towards ending the climate of hate. Join us at UUCLV as we dig deep in search of answers.
