Report from Beloved Community Center, Greensboro, NC
Rev. Nelson Johnson and Joyce Hobson Johnson
In addition to reading the speech, the events focused on specific struggles underway in those localities around either $15 wage, police accountability, immigration, and HB2. In Greensboro we began with a series of justice events around police beating up a 15 last year, a healing gathering downtown at noon, more activities centered around police accountability and lack of transparency, wrapping up the day at Beloved Community Center with reading of the 1967 speech and intergenerational discussion of its relevance to today.
