MLK Day 2022: Beloved Community

  • Blogs

Authored by Toni Cross, Director of Diversity, Equity, and Student Life, and Arianne Thomas, Director of Fellowships in Equity & Action and Director of the Aspire Program

Here at Hathaway Brown School, we strive to foster in the minds of our students an abiding passion for learning and in their hearts a constant devotion to strong character and public service.

We encourage you to embrace this MLK Day by engaging in meaningful action by learning more about what it means to foster a celebrated, beloved community of dignity and belonging. 

During his life, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke of an idea known as the Beloved Community. It is a powerful concept, embodying the idea of connection and mutual care.  The past couple of years have been full of challenging circumstances, and this connection and mutual care have never been more important. 

Recognizing that many of us are hitting the pandemic wall, we are opting this year to empower you to choose how you would like to engage in the activities of the day. While we are not hosting activities on campus, we invite you to participate in a community bingo game that offers a variety of ways to engage with the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Should you complete the game, email your completed sheet (or simply share which activities you completed) to DEIB@hb.edu and you will be entered into a drawing to win a lovely HB-themed gift! Prizes made possible through a generous contribution from Grace Beedles '19. Thank you to all the contributors to this fun Bingo activity!

Also, students in Middle and Upper School who complete the bingo activities will be awarded brown and gold points or color competition points for their respective teams! Tell us which team you are on or which grade level you are in when you email us!

We can’t wait to see how you engage! Thank you for joining us in celebrating Dr. King’s Beloved Community!
