Polarization as Possibility: The Justice Strategizing of Bayard Rustin and MLK, Jr. – Jan 21
Posted by Haverford College on January 4, 2022
Join in Zoom dialogue with George Lakey and Terrance Wiley, both of whom bring extensive research on and practice with “angelic troublemaking,” through understanding the philosophy and practice of Rustin, King, and effective organizers for liberatory justice.
Conflict is challenging for many of us, but the insights of King and Rustin offer hope. King encountered violent conflict across America yet received the Nobel Peace Prize. His mentor Rustin urged “angelic troublemakers” to act more boldly. What can we learn from the organizing leader behind much of the Civil Rights Movement, Bayard Rustin, who was born in nearby West Chester, PA, and raised in a Quaker household? How did King and Rustin’s theories of change leverage polarization toward possibility, and what does it mean for us in today’s environment?
This event will take place on Zoom from noon to 1:30 pm ET on Friday, January 21, 2022.
