Civil Rights, MLK and the Passive Moderate:
A Conversation to Inspire & Challenge our Potential to Activism
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. honored nonviolence as a pilgrimage. We are all at different places on this journey. Dr. King offered powerful ideas about the challenge of working with passive white moderates and what he saw as the “Shallow understanding from people of goodwill…” He viewed this “[as] more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.” – Letter from Birmingham Jail, April 1963. Using a circles dialogue process (inspired by Our Family’s Center for Community Dialogue), we will share and listen and, hopefully, arrive at a fresh understanding of this challenge. Please join us.”
