“But the end 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 type of understanding goodwill that will transform the deep gloom of the old age into the exuberant gladness of the new age. It is this love which will bring about miracles in the hearts of men.
- Martin Luther King, “Facing the Challenge of a New Age,” 1956
The exhibition Beloved Community celebrates Black History Month and MLK Day 2020. The title of the show is derived by Dr. King’s quote about “Beloved Community” from Facing the Challenge of a New Age in 1956. The body of work in this exhibition considers Black identity, family and community that are interpreted by three St. Louis local artists, Jen Everett, WORK/PLAY and Ron E. Young.
