Nonviolence and Social Movements: Teachings of Reverend James Lawson Jr. by Kent Wong, Ana Luz Gonzalez

$18.22

Reverend James M. Lawson Jr. first shook hands with Martin Luther King Jr. on February 6, 1957, at Oberlin College in Ohio. Their conversation compelled Lawson to move to the South to join the emerging struggle for justice and dignity. On the eve of his assassination, King called Lawson “The leading theorist and strategist of nonviolence in the world.”
     . . . This is the first book that captures Lawson’s teachings. Five powerful case studies explore how individual acts of conscience can lead to collective action and how the practice of nonviolence can build a powerful movement for social change.
     This publication emerged from a class taught by James Lawson, Kent Wong, Kelly Lytle Hernandez, and Ana Luz Gonzalez at UCLA, and it was written by students who were inspired by the class. © 136 pages
