In the days of legal racial segregation, no black person could defend themselves against the violence of a white person without suffering severe reprisals. However, if whites and blacks alike do not remain mindful of the continual need to contest racist segregation and to work towards a racially integrated society free of white supremacy, then the people will never live in beloved community. Many seeds of John Fee's vision of ending racism and racial segregation, of creating beloved community where the people live united by the understanding that "they are all people of one blood", lie dormant, simply waiting for growth to be nurtured. Hopefully Berea can one day be the same beacon light that it once was showing their nation what must take place if the people are to create an anti-racist culture, if they are to live among beloved community.
