We invite you to The People's Supper: A dinner & conversation centering Healing Justice & Spiritual Ecology 50 years after Dr. King.
In his final Christmas Sermon before Dr. King was killed, he declared, “In a real sense all life is inter-related. All [beings] are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny."
We will gather together the evening of April 4th, 2018, the 50th Anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination - joining one another for a community dinner and conversation on violence, environmental racism and radical imagination at this critical time. We intend to invoke the sacred memory of this evening and the legacy of Dr. King’s life by gathering through nourishment and conversation with intergenerational folks in Atlanta across disciplines, practices, geographies, class, and experiences to heal and bridge together.
We invite you to step into a new and old beloved community - and a space of deeper reflection and vulnerability with folks whose work and ways of being tell a fundamentally different story of hope and resilience transcending the fear-based messages trying to seperate us.
Chef Maricela Vega of Chicomoecóatl will be serving up a southern-influenced meal rooted in the histories of African + Mesoamerican diasporic cuisine. Mike + Shyretha Sheats from The Plate Sale are also joining us and preparing the last meal that Dr. King never had the opportunity to eat - it is our intention that we may be nourished by his vision and that we may live into the question, what is his dream asking of us at this time?
Lead to Life is co-hosting this dinner with The People’s Supper, who has teamed up with folks on the ground, schools, faith communities and neighborhood organizations to host 1000+ suppers in cities and towns across the country, most recently for The Obama Foundation & #LoveArmy. We are also excited to be supported by producers #ChopItUpATL & ThinkTable.
