This workshop will analyze Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s intellectual development and his search for truth. Participants will examine how his nonviolent philosophy was used during the Civil Rights Movement. Participants will explore how the principles Dr. King embraced played a unique role in achieving the goals in the nonviolent campaigns he led. Based on their familiarity with the techniques used by Gandhi and King, participants will discover resources in the community that can be used to reinforce the nonviolent process in solving social problems.
This workshop will be valuable for college faculty and students, school teachers, business and community leaders, peace workers, mediators and other professionals who are interested in the nonviolent transformation of conflicts.
