the beloved community
yesterday, bean was one of the moderators of the beloved community event at usm, a belated mlk day/black history month celebration. about eighty percent of it was excellent: interviews with portland community leaders, readings of martin luther king's writing, and various student performances. there were a couple of cringey parts that will no doubt be edited out of future events, but bean did an amazing job hosting and interviewing. and the bates college gospel choir, the gospelaires, were fabulous.
