Join On Earth Peace on MLK Day (01/15) at 2PM Eastern for a special introduction to Kingian Nonviolence. Hear stories and anecdotes from the Civil Rights Movement shared by Mary Lou Finley and Sherri Bevel. Mary Lou and Sherri will communicate the core of the Kingian Nonviolence Legacy, grounding in stories and examples from their own lives and the broader Movement.

This 2 Hour webinar covers:

  • The "4 pillars" of Kingian Nonviolence provided in the context of the Movement 
  • Initial introduction to the 6 Principles and 6 Steps - the “Will” and the “Skill” of Kingian Nonviolence, with connections to real-life scenarios
  • The Social Dynamics of Kingian Nonviolence to better understand the dynamics that nonviolence practitioners navigate to develop powerful initiatives 

 

This training will be co-facilitated by Sherrilynn Bevel and Mary Lou Finley.

 

Sherrilynn Bevel, PhD, is a Level III Kingian Nonviolence Trainer. She co-founded and is Associate Director of the Addie Wyatt Center for Nonviolence Training. From 2018 through 2020, she was Director of Training and Special Projects for the Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence in Providence. Sherri chairs the board of directors of The Diversity Think Tank, which seeks equity in academic hiring at state-supported institutions of higher education. In the classroom, she teaches political science, human rights, Nonviolence, and African American studies. In The Chicago Freedom Movement: Martin Luther King Jr. and Civil Rights Activism in the North (U. of KY Press, 2016), she documented the contributions of a youth-led campaign to end lead poisoning, which ultimately resulted in federal lead protection legislation; and argued that this aspect of the Chicago Freedom Movement was an important precursor to the modern environmental justice movement.  

Mary Lou Finley served on the staff of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Chicago Project in the mid-1960s.   She is a sociologist and Professor Emerita at Antioch University Seattle and has  a lifelong commitment to social justice, working over the years on  racial justice issues and poverty as well as environmental issues and more.    She is the co-author with Bill Moyer and two others of Doing Democracy:  The MAP Model for Organizing Social Movements, and the co-editor (with Bernard LaFayette Jr., James Ralph and Pam Smith)  of The Chicago Freedom Movement:  Martin Luther King, Jr. and Civil Rights Activism in the North (2016). She is a certified Kingian Nonviolence trainer and a co-founder of the Addie Wyatt Center for Nonviolence Training- Chicago.
