Newsletter: Black History Month 2018

In the US, we designate February as Black History Month, to commemorate and celebrate African-American achievements and contributions. It’s an opportunity to honor voices and perspectives that have often been left out or marginalized—and to go beyond the “heroes and holidays” approach to the month by learning all year. Plus: Our latest Nonviolence Radio show features guests Kazu Haga and Dion Martin, who join us to discuss interrupting incarceration. Read the February 7, 2018 newsletter.

Interrupting Incarceration with Nonviolence

  Kazu Haga of East Point Peace Academy comes back to Nonviolence Radio with one of his students, Dion Martin. Martin became a trainer for Kingian Nonviolence through Kazu’s program while incarcerated at the San Francisco County Jail. After three years, he was acquitted and is now exploring ways of sharing his practice with others who have been in similar situations. Listen to the way their stories weave together, and what they have to say about nonviolence. Stay for the second half of the show where we explore the underreported gems of nonviolence in our news, including a tribute to the late scholar and nonviolent strategist, Gene Sharp.
