Tina L. Singleton

Founder, Community Curator
2024 Honoree

Tina L. Singleton is the founder and curator of Transformation Table, a global organization whose vision is to realize Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s global vision of Beloved Community – a space of social equity, belonging, and freedom from prejudice.

Transformation Table creates space at the dinner table among strangers of different backgrounds, perspectives, and life experiences to find those little points of connection that allows us to see each other’s humanity.

An idea borne in Kabul, Afghanistan and launched in Charleston in November 2016, Transformation Table is the response to a challenge to find ways to love and understand each other by Bernice King, daughter of Martin Luther King, Jr., at the one-year anniversary of the mass shooting at Mother Emanuel AME Church.

An Air Force brat and former international development worker specializing in inclusive development that took her to countries across the globe, Tina’s superpower is the ability to move in and out of communities, to live and work among people of different cultures.

An invitation to share a meal was always her way into community – whether it was in Afghanistan, Sierra Leonne, or Bangladesh. She believes in the value of each person’s unique story and that we are all inextricably linked – part of one global family.

Tina’s passion for using the dinner table as a tool for connection and social change has been featured in articles in Charleston Magazine, Organic Life Magazine, the Post and Courier, Tableux, and Edible Charleston Magazine. She has been recognized as an NBC Charleston’s Hometown Hero and included in the Emmy award winning program, “Food for the Soul.”

She is a TEDx speaker and was honored to receive the Peace & Dialogue Award from the Atlantic Institute. She is also the recipient of the Spot Light Servant Leadership Award, in honor of Susie Jackson, one of the parishioners killed during the Mother Emanuel Church mass shooting.

A global nomad at heart, Tina recently relocated to a farm in Obidos, Portugal where she can dig in the dirt and Zen while weeding in the garden. The water is her happy place – she loves to kayak – and her favorite meal is bread, wine, and cheese!
