This year marks the 50th anniversary of Dr. King's assassination. On April 3, the night before he was killed, King told the crowd in Memphis, "the choice is no longer violence or nonviolence; it's nonviolence or existence."

Dr. Roger Barnes, UIW Professor of Sociology and Chair of Sociology and Criminal Justice, will consider the ideas and events which formed Dr. King in the way of nonviolence, which he called "the love that does justice."

This presentation is part of Campaign Nonviolence, a global movement for sensible transformation initiated by Pace e Bene started by the Franciscans: www.paceebene.org/programs/campaign-nonviolence/
