The Beloved Community is Dr. King’s dream of a society in which we experience mutual respect and acceptance for one another, regardless of differences which may divide us. The Graetz Symposium was founded by the National Center to honor the longtime human rights activism of the Rev. Robert and Mrs. Jean E. Graetz. It is designed to stimulate action-oriented citizens to work toward reconciliation while examining factors that divide ethnic groups.Return to event list.
The morning program, beginning at 9:30 a.m., will be devoted to breakout sessions, examining how we are doing in achieving that dream in five aspects of society.
The highlight of this year’s symposium will be a keynote speech by the renowned civil rights leader, Dr. Julian Bond. His presentation is scheduled for 12:00 p.m.
