    Exploring Non-Violent Action

    with Rev. Nica Eaton-Guinn

    Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and Congressman John Lewis were staunch advocates of a non-violent revolution. Today, on this Sunday celebrating Martin Luther King Day, we explore what non-violent action means, and the many ways we might engage it to make our world more racially equitable and just.
