African Diaspora Tourism Explorer

Bimini, Bahamas is set to host a one-of-a-kind peace retreat on November 1-3, 2013. Organization leaders from Atlanta, the US, Caribbean and beyond will gather on the serene island for a week-end of relaxation, renewal and the contemplation of world peace. They are coming to view the memorial bust of one of the greatest peacemakers of all times, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Retreat participants will get to network with leaders in the field of social justice and nonviolent conflict resolutions.             

The memorial bust was erected in honor of Dr. King by the Bahamian Government because Bimini is where he came for refuge and to write two of his speeches.The peace retreat pays tribute to Dr. King and the 2013 Peacemaker Honorees: Ms. Naomi King, sister-in-law of Dr. King; Mr. Joe Beasley, international humanitarian and Mr. Ansil Saunders, Dr. King's companion when he visited the island. Gospel/R&B artist Fabrice "Breeze" Clerger will honor Dr. King's legacy with a performance of his song "The Dream Realized" that was written for the King family.
