Nonviolence Has Changed the World:
The U S Civil Rights Movement: Gandhi's independence movement in India: The Solidarity Movement in Poland: The South African Apartheid Revolution: The U S Women's Suffrage Movement: Democracy in Ukraine: The US Labor Movement
Martin Luther King Jr. called Jim Lawson, "the leading theorist and strategist of nonviolence in the world."
Reverend James Lawson studied the Gandhian movement in India before becoming a leader and the architect of non-violent action in the civil rights movement, partnering with The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Rev. Lawson's life has been marked by an abiding faith in non-violence and a willingness to pay the price for those beliefs. He served 13 months of a three-year prison sentence for refusing the draft during the Korean War, and was expelled from Vanderbilt in 1960 because of his work helping to desegregate lunch counters in downtown Nashville .
