Kingian Nonviolence and Community Action

In a June 2018 event sponsored by the Dayton International Peace Museum, forty people attended the first offering of a new formulation of Kingian Nonviolence training, a two-day workshop focused on community action, organizing and mobilizing. Matt Guynn co-designed and co-led the workshop with Kezia Curtis of Black Lives Matter Detroit, with the support of David Jehnsen and the Kingian Nonviolence Coordinating Committee. The workshop provided an opportunity for people to bring their "headlines"-- issues and community concerns -- and to use them as the context to practice lenses and tools of active nonviolence from the Kingian tradition. Kingian Nonviolence provides skills, philosophy and methodology of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the black-led Freedom and Civil Rights Movement in a way that makes lesson accessible for social change leaders today.  This content will be adapted for a six-week online course starting in October 2018.
