Let’s Work Together
MLK Bridges invites you to a full day symposium for regional churches around the concept of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Beloved Community with a special focus on how grace can help us build difficult to navigate bridges around race.
Our special guest will be Rev. Dr. C. Anthony Hunt pastor of Epworth Chapel UMC in Baltimore MD and the author of eight books including “Blessed are the Peacemakers: A Theological Analysis of the Thought of Howard Thurman and Martin Luther King, Jr.”
The workshop will focus on the concept of the Beloved Community as introduced by Dr. King, regional resources for racial understanding and action from the Black Protestant, Evangelical, Roman Catholic, and Mainline traditions, and what it means to be a church that is on the road to addressing racial understanding and action.
We’ll be at St. Teresa of Avila Church (1244 V Street SE, Washington DC 20020) from 9am-3pm on Saturday October 13 2018.

Grace and Race Ministries, Inc. and Kingdom Mission Society will commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by engaging 50 houses of worship, faith-based and other civic organizations to work together as bridge builders for racial understanding and action.
“What can I do?” is a frequently asked question when it comes to issues related to race in our communities. Throughout 2018, we will identify good answers to that question, as well as, provide and promote opportunities to add your voice and to be engaged with people of faith in supporting the legacy of Dr. King. We recognize there are many organizations striving to advance his dream. These efforts are often isolated and do not receive the attention they deserve. We will seek to create a supportive regional network of allies and friends committed to enhancing racial understanding and moving toward Dr. King’s dream of the beloved community.
We invite you to become a founding supporter with MLK 50 Bridges in recognition of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
MLK 50 Bridges is a collaborative effort to:
- Break the silence around racism
- Build bridges of understanding
- Share information and promote relevant community activities related to racial understanding
- Provide education and training to help develop knowledge and skills to disrupt and dismantle racism
Here is a some video of a Facebook Live Recording which explains our work. Around minute 35:00 we get into some of the topics that come up on racial understanding within churches. Stay tuned as we do more MLK Bridges Conversations throughout 2018.
