Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. popularized the phrase "beloved community" to represent his vision for societies that embrace cooperation, unity and connection. To honor and apply this bold idea, the Salt Lake Community College School of Arts, Communication and Media created a new program to encourage art by local students that showcases their own cherished neighborhoods.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Salt Lake Community College Office of Government and Community Relations, the Beloved Community Photography Project provided photography equipment and instruction by SLCC faculty members Whitney Hyans & Elisa Stone to 6th grade students at Whittier Elementary School in Salt Lake City. After participating in classroom activities that explored Dr. King's legacy and training in photography techniques, Whittier students took photos that highlight their beloved connections with their own communities.
