TOUGH MIND, TENDER HEART CELEBRATES ACTIVISTS WORKING IN ANTIRACISM FOR BLACK HISTORY MONTH
ATLANTA, February 2, 2014 – “The Beloved Community” is a term popularized by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., that captures the imagination of people of goodwill. In this vision, poverty, hunger, and homelessness are not tolerated, because international standards of human decency will not allow it, and racism and prejudice are replaced by an all-inclusive spirit. Dr. King believed this goal could be achieved by a mass of people committed to social change. Today, social justice website, Tough Mind, Tender Heart, features three frontline activists committed to this goal.
