The Beloved Community is the framework for the future

Throughout history, the Beloved Community, a term used by Dr. King and coined by philosopher Josiah Royce, has always evoked the ultimate goal of people seeking a society in which justice, truth, peace and harmony prevail. It is a high goal that must pre-exist within the hearts and souls of those who seek change and use nonviolence to seek that change.  The Beloved Community concept means that we must begin living now -- as we think society ought to be in the future.
