Conversation: Thich Nhat Hanh & MLK, online

January 18 @ 1:00 pm

A Fellowship of Reconciliation – USA event

Tuesday, Jan. 18th, 1:00 p.m. Pacific (4:00 p.m. Eastern): A conversation with Marc Andrus, author of the new book, Brothers in the Beloved Community: The Friendship of Thich Nhat Hanh and Martin Luther King, Jr.

This compelling new book describes the deep relationship between Martin Luther King, Jr. and Thich Nhat Hanh, two iconic spiritual leaders who met in 1966 and 1967 and became not only allies in the peace movement, but friends. Despite coming from different religions and cultures, and from countries at war with one another, their friendship reached a great depth in a short period of time. King nominated Nhat Hanh for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967, and following King’s assassination the next year, Nhat Hanh mourned his passing.

The two men bonded over a vision of the Beloved Community: a vision described by Rep. John Lewis as “a nation and world society at peace with itself.” Each were members of the Fellowship of Reconciliation, which informed that understanding, and Dr. King had been popularizing this concept through his work for some time. Thich Nhat Hanh, author Andrus shows, took the lineage of the Beloved Community from King and carried it on after his death.
