I & Thou: Building Beloved Community


February 1, 2015  

 

Last week I had the opportunity to see the movie Selma. The movie captures one of the critical moments in civil rights movement, com- pressed into three marches across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma. It recounts a community’s struggle to abolish literacy and civics tests, poll taxes and other strategies that prevented African Americans from voting, after the passing of the Civil Rights Act that ended segregation. The non- violent protests, sit-ins and marches were aimed at creating the Beloved Community.

 

Following the Supreme Court decision desegregating the seats on Montgomery’s buses, Dr. King described the Beloved Community this way: “The end (of nonviolent protest) is reconciliation, the end is redemption, the end is the creation of the Beloved Community. It is this type of spirit, and this type of love that can transform opposers into friends... It is this love that will bring about miracles in the hearts of men.”
