Changing History by Non-Violent Means


In recognition of the International Day of Non-Violence designated by the United Nations and commemorated on the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, October 2, 2019, John Baggett, Ph.D. will speak about the work and influence of Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and describe his own journey as a participant in the Civil Rights movement.  John Baggett grew up in the segregated south, but became an early civil rights advocate marching alongside Dr. King in Selma, Alabama. Baggett  protested school segregation and  founded and taught classes at The School of Human Dignity in Chicago to spread awareness, education and cultural affirmation of African American history and culture.  

The presentation will be followed by a Question & Answer session.  Free and open to the public.  Refreshments will be served.

Friday, October 4, 2019 from 6:30 – 8 p.m. on the first floor of Evans Library.
