Friday Colloquiums - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and His Legacy of Non-Violence

The recent holiday celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's birthday reminds us of his legacy as a civil rights activist and as a spokesman for nonviolence. What principles of nonviolence did MLK apply to the civil rights movement?  How did his notions of nonviolence differ from those of other advocates of nonviolence, such as Gandhi? How is nonviolence a response not just to violence and injustice, but also to power in general? 

Kurt Burch, this week's presenter, received training in nonviolence at the MLK, Jr. Center in Atlanta, Ga. Burch will lead this discussion on Friday, February 13 at 12 p.m. in room C 1018.
