Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. extolled the promise of the beloved community. As the result of a world committed to non-violence, the beloved community would be an integrated global society in which all citizens would share in prosperity; where justice and peace would reign; and where bigotry and prejudice would fall away. This panel explores how the Art Bank pieces on the walls at the MLK Library, from DCPL’s inaugural Art Bank Collection Loan program, might bring Dr. King's teachings to life.
