IPC and Black History Month Celebrate at the Grand Cinema
February 7, 2017 @ 6:45 pm - 9:00 pm
IPC and community organizations for Black History Month will co-sponsor UWT Professor Michael Honey’s “Love and Solidarity: James Lawson and Nonviolence in the Search for Workers’ Rights” at the Grand Cinema. The 40-minute film went into distribution across the U.S. with Bullfrog Films in September. It features the civil rights, peace, and labor activism of Rev. Lawson, a Methodist minister in Los Angeles who worked with Martin Luther King and teaches and models the values and methods of nonviolence. Lawson sees nonviolence is a “force more powerful” than violence and political oppression, which makes this truly a film for our times. Pastor Dave Brown will moderate a discussion following the film.
