"Ways to Justice: Perspectives on Nonviolence, Civil Resistance, and Self Defense"
Friday, May 06, 2016
10:00 AM - 10:00 PM
Tresidder Memorial Union, Stanford University, 459 Lagunita Dr, Stanford, CA 94305
The purpose of the “Ways to Justice” conference is to bring together prominent scholars and activists who share an interest in the methods of struggle used in grassroots justice movements. A collection of historical anniversaries that are being marked in 2016, including the 50th anniversaries of the rise of the Black Power movement and founding of the Black Panthers, and of the release of the seminal film The Battle of Algiers, provide a frame for re-examining the challenges to nonviolent methods that arose in the 1960s and that reverberate in today's struggles for civil and human rights. The conference also features student-organized workshops and film screenings, and is free and open to all.
