Jim Douglass will speak on his latest book presening the unrecognized history behind Gandhi's assassination that provides a key to understanding the later murders of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., and the unspeakable targeting of a nonviolent vision today. Douglass writes books that, by helping us understand our history, has the power to change it.
James W. Douglass is a longtime peace activist and author. He and his wife Shelley are cofounders of the Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action in Poulsbo, Washington, and Mary's House, a Catholic Worker house of hospitality in Birmingham, Alabama. He also authored "JFK and the Unspeakable: Why he died and why it matters," "The Nonviolent Coming of God," "Lightning East to West: Jesus, Gandhi, and the Nuclear Age," "Resistance and Contemplation," and "The Nonviolent Cross: A Theology of Revolution and Peace."
