  Beloved Community Initiative Awards Ceremony and Public Humanities Summit  
(Special Event)

The Beloved Community Initiative is a partnership between Virginia Tech and Virginia Union University to explore and advance Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s conception of the Beloved Community in the 21st century. In 2017, the VT-VUU partnership launched the inaugural Beloved Community Initiative Essay Contest. The essay contest invited junior and senior high school students to choose one set of historical figures and prepare an exploration of those two (or three) persons, focusing on how the legacy of their life's journey came together to advance the Beloved Community. On November 27, 2018, The VT-VUU Beloved Community Initiative will celebrate the essay contest winners. The event will feature two panels on (1) the history of the Civil Rights movement through the lens of the winning essays and (2) understanding contemporary forms of structural inequality implications for creating systems of economic and social justice, paradigmatically captured in Martin Luther King Jr.'s vision for a "Beloved Community."
