Berkeley Unitarian Universalist
Fellowship Hall: 1924 Cedar, Berkeley
Are Dr.King's teachings on war and peace relevant to an age of climate change, to corporate globalization and blowback?
King was not only inspired by India's Gandhi-led victory over British imperialism, he was influenced by W.E.B.Dubois and Paul Robeson. Both taught that imperialism and democracy cannot survive together.
Paul Rockwell, peace activist and columnist for In Motion Magazine, was at Riverside Church when King delivered his soul-searing, anti-imperialist address on April 4, 1967.Rockwell will deliver a sermon on King's legacy at the Berkeley Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship Hall, Sunday, January 17 at 10:30 a.m. 1924 Cedar Ave. Berkeley. All are welcome.
