12:00 PM - 3:00 PM Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr.: Gandhi: Film Viewing
It’s often known that Martin Luther King Jr. took great inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi in pushing forward his Civil Rights Movement. Although the two never met personally, Dr. King was introduced to Gandhi’s teachings while at Crozer Theological Seminary. His first application of the non-violent campaign came in 1955 during the Montgomery bus boycott. Here he had a firsthand opportunity to witness the power of a peaceful protest.
In his 1959 Palm Sunday sermon, King preached on the significance of Gandhi’s 1928 salt march and his fast to end discrimination against India’s untouchables. King ultimately believed that the Gandhian approach of nonviolent resistance would “bring about a solution to the race problem in America.”
This acclaimed biographical drama presents major events in the life of Mahatma Gandhi, the beloved Indian leader who stood against British rule over his country. Gandhi is initially dismissed by English officials, but eventually he and his cause become internationally renowned, and his gatherings of passive protest move India towards independence.
