Kingian Nonviolence offers a curriculum for understanding the skills of nonviolent strategizing, as derived from the lifework of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  According to Dr. Bernard LaFayette Jr. and David Jehnsen, authors of “The Leader’s Manual,” Nonviolent strategy is forceful “and assertive toward changing the institutionalized policies, practices and conditions that deny people their full dignity as human beings.  Nonviolence resists; it challenges the peaceful nature of unjust conditions.”

The introductory training will be co-presented by American Civil Rights leader Dr. Bernard LaFayette, Jr., appointed by Martin Luther King as his national program administrator, and by Level V Certified Kingian Nonviolence Trainer Jonathan “Globe” Lewis, tribal citizen of the Blackfoot Tribe.

This introductory training, embedded in a deep and nuanced philosophy, provides the basic system of Dr. King’s methodology, first-person accounts and analyses of successes of Dr. King’s applicable to the intersectional crises of our times.  Your participation in this exciting training provides to you a deeper understanding, a set of open and creative tools, insight, imagination, and the acumen for what is required for accelerated movement building.

LaFayette and Jehnsen state that “Because his [King’s] philosophy and methods were so effective in transforming long-held values and discriminatory social conditions, and because he based his response to repression and violence on his faith and conviction that violence was not a valid means of solving social problems, Dr. King’s life stands today as one of the greatest moral forces in history" as witnessed in the ending of Jim Crow segregation, the passage of the American Civil Rights Act, and the U.S. Voting Rights Act, among other historic successes.  “We can recognize the impact of his continuing legacy when we see Eastern Europeans, South Africans, Asians, Middle Easterners and South Americans singing “We Shall Overcome” in countless native languages and applying his methods of nonviolence.”

We at the SCLC NM welcome you to be in the presence of Dr. Bernard LaFayette, Jr. and join us October 27 and 28, 2017 for this expansion of your abilities to alter social consciousness.
