      In a speech at Brandeis University, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. noted that the attainable ideal for the movement was to create a “beloved community,” where neighbors are compassionate and inclusive, living peaceably together, without friction. Atlanta was King’s home and community, and his legacy is still very much ingrained in the city.

We partner with hosts to produce conferences and workshops to teach the practice and create resources for making connections and building a repertoire of songs for paperless song leading.
