“Capes into Pillows” – Exploring our relationship to the grind, time, and self-care              

Tuesday, February 9
6 p.m. 
 
Do you wonder why there is still a strong push to be productive despite the pandemic? What has the pandemic revealed about your relationship to rest? Are you exhausted and overwhelmed? 
 
Join facilitator, author and creative, Julia Mallory, as she examines what prevents our ability to rest and not just fall from the sky.  She will explore the myth of super or (sub)humans; racial and gender caricatures, including the StrongBlackWoman and SuperWoman, and the culture of hyper-productivity. This month, CIP looks to the historical archives, lived experience, and current events for revelation related to the Black American experience.  
 
At the center of its examination is the evolution from forced free labor to under/uncompensated labor and how these realities produce inequalities ranging from the sleep gap to the wage gap.

Hidden Figures: Black History is More than MLK

Tuesday, February 23
6 p.m. 
 
On February 7, 1926, Carter G. Woodson, initiated the first celebration of Negro History Week which led to Black History Month, a month dedicated to deepening the study and scholarship of African American contributions in the United States.  But every February which inventors, innovators and activators generally receive the most attention?  Usually it’s Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Frederick Douglass, etc.
This discussion will go beyond those standard bearers of Black History Month, not to lessen their contributions, but as a testament to a few of the thousands of individuals who have helped build our nation.

 How do you observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day?

The Beloved Community

At the forefront of Dr. King’s mission and legacy is considering how best to serve one’s community. His wife, Coretta Scott King, continued his legacy of conceiving an achievable society, the Beloved Community, that would carry out the mission that we are all called to be of service to our community, both local and global. Please consider contributing a reflection for our "Beloved Community" to be shared with the BHCC Community in honor of the National Holiday – now and through the month of February, as we celebrate Black History Month.

You can submit your diverse interpretation in any format, style or medium that is personal or represents you through an essay, poetry, lyrics, spoken word, poem, drawing, photography, as examples, but not limited to any or all of the following questions.

  • Why is MLK’s legacy important and/or resonates with you?
  • Through the lens of recent social and political unrest, what can the writings, speeches and/or ideology of MLK teach us?
  • State and discuss a quote from MLK and its relevance today.

You may view a video collage of how some members of our community have responded to these questions by sharing their reflections. https://bhcc.digication.com/mlk

You can also share a reflection to be included in the ongoing collage. Send a 1-2 minute video in your words, a reading and/or discussion of a quote or passage from Martin Luther King, Jr.’s writings/speeches, or a poetic expression written by you or another writer inspired by MLK, to eventvideo@bhcc.edu.

Final date for video submission: Friday, February 19, 8 p.m.

The full video collage will be shown during an upcoming Black History Month event, "The Beloved Community”: Reflecting on MLK’s Legacy and BHCC’s Engaged Campus, Thursday, February 25, at 6 p.m.

About Martin Luther King, Jr.:  Civil Rights icon, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., dedicated his life to eliminating the systemic racism that terrorized African American citizens. His activism and leadership resulted in the federally recognized Civil Rights Act of 1964, which outlawed segregation in public places and banned employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin. King’s call for a peaceful and “beloved community” is echoed, over fifty years after his assassination in 1968, in light of recent social and political unrest.

About "The Beloved Community": The mission and vision of an achievable society from Coretta Scott King, wife of MLK, Jr. and founder of The King Center, is a spiritual bond that claims the energies and commitment of a diverse group of people who desire to serve a cause larger than themselves. The Beloved Community is fueled by unconditional love, feels like family, and transcends race, religion, and class.
