In The Meantime is excited to introduce its latest social justice billboard featuring three of the community’s most respected leaders: Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Archbishop Carl Bean, and Bayard Rustin. Thank you for elevating LOVE and INCLUSIVITY into the world.
The slogan, LOVE IS FOR EVERYONE was coined by the late great Archbishop Carl Bean through his radical theological teachings that continue to transcend religiosity. The Archbishop also sang the Motown hit, “I Was Born This Way,” later covered by Lady Gaga.
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. called for social reform, equality, and equity for all people. He stood during a time when many shrunk in fear, and led a non-violent movement that transformed the world. He had a dream, and that dream includes ALL of us.
Bayard Rustin was noted as the Socrates of the civil rights movement. Among his many accomplishments, Rustin is most known for orchestrating the March on Washington. He was an openly gay man who stood in his truth while fighting for the rights of all.
As we enter the close of another year and open the door to 2024, let us be reminded of what these three giants taught us about love in action. Let us agree to be better citizens of the planet.
In The Meantime Men’s Group, Inc. is purposed to enrich, empower, and extend the lives of intergenerational black men, respectful of sexual orientation, through social, educational, health and wellness programs and services.
