MLK Evening – People of Color and Allies
with Angela Dews
Monday, January 20th, 2020 | 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Join us for our annual special People of Color Sangha + Allies sit on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in which we remember the legacy of MLK—a life of committed, courageous, compassionate action.
What does Martin Luther King, Jr. really teach us? Often, when we speak of Dr. King we observe that he was able to look at the truth, full in the face, and still love. But looking at the truth is not something to skip over to get to love. Gina Sharpe said, “In the depth of despair, asking ‘what does this suffering have to teach me?‘ can be a powerful and loving way to go through it rather than around it.”
We look forward to spending an evening with you in meditation and conversation.
No previous meditation experience is required.
