Film Showing: Love and Solidarity 9/22

        Professor Michael Honey of the University of Washington, Tacoma will be hosting a showing of his film, "Love and Solidarity: Rev. James Lawson and Nonviolence in the Search for Labor Rights." Reverend Lawson, a leader in building the nonviolent practice at the center of the civil rights movement, continues his life as an activist today, continuing to build nonviolent approaches to social justice issues of the present. A remarkable figure, Reverend Lawson's story, in particular his work in the arena of labor rights, is the subject of Mike's film.  We are fortunate that Professor Honey-- himself an activist as well as a highly respected scholar who has received countless awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship and the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award for his Going Down Jericho Road--will join us for a discussion following the film.

         The film is about 30 minutes and there will be another hour for Q and A and discussion.
