Charlie Walker – Teaching Gandhi & Jesus, Then & Now
Brenda Beadenkopf’s presentation at our next Quarterly Meeting is based on her upcoming book about Philadelphia Quaker pacifist Charlie Walker and his many contributions to the Civil Rights Movement. Charlie, aside from his participation in organizing major civil rights actions, was an expert trainer in Gandhian nonviolent techniques. Brenda will share a power point talk describing Walker’s teachings in the principles and theories of nonviolence and his work with Martin Luther King and other civil rights leaders. She will then lead us in some of the role-play-based training she has been doing recently with adults and youth that come out of Charlie’s work.
Note: Childcare is available beginning at 8:30.
Directions: Located at 827 Concord Rd., Concordville PA 19331. From Rte. 1 in Concordville, take Concord Rd. south 1⁄4 mile past the Concordville Fire House; meetinghouse is on left.
