Only Light, Only Love: MLK Week at IMAN


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Fifty years after King's assassination, we at IMAN remain committed to driving out darkness, hatred, poverty and the blight of devastating structural racism from the inner-city communities that we serve.

Only Light, Only Love is a weeklong series of events focused on building the powerful, permeating love which—by necessity—"implements the demands of justice" as Dr. King demanded that it should over five decades ago.

We invite you to join us for a week of inspiring programming:
