Love and Solidarity: A Film Screening and Q/A with Michael Honey

February 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

What can people do to change a world full of violence and hate?

Is nonviolent revolution possible?

Love and Solidarity explores these questions through the life of Reverend James Lawson, an African American Methodist minister who worked alongside Martin Luther King, Jr. to initiate civil rights struggles in the 1960s South. His commitment to nonviolent social change in the 1960s remained his major life purpose. In recent years, he has taught nonviolent organizing techniques to working class coalitions of Black and Latino workers that refashioned the labor movement in Los Angeles.

Utilizing oral history interviews with Reverend Lawson and archival film footage, acclaimed labor and civil rights historian Michael Honey and award-winning filmmaker Errol Webber examine the nonviolent social change at the heart of present-day struggles for universal human rights, peace, and economic justice in the face of violence. Join the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program and the Black Graduate Student Association at the University of Florida’s Pugh Hall at 7 PM on Tuesday, February 28th for a film screening and Q/A with Michael Honey. Free parking is available.
