Nationally recognized trainers in using nonviolence as an active, positive, reconciling force for change are speaking at Manchester University on Tuesday, Oct. 24. Matt Guynn ’95, director of nonviolent social change organizing at On Earth Peace, and Pam Smith, executive director of the Addie Wyatt Center for Nonviolence Training, will present “Kingian Nonviolence: The Beloved Community is the Framework for the Future.”

This presentation is part of a larger conversation throughout the 2017-18 academic year honoring MU’s tradition of peace and justice. Fifty years ago, on Feb. 1, 1968, King spoke to an overflow audience at Manchester on “The Future of Integration.” It was his last address at a college campus before his assassination.
