A Season of Nonviolence - Richmond youth joins path for peace

Richmond youth joins path for peace - - Home:

"The Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith delivered the keynote address on "A Season of Nonviolence." Both Roots Kelso and Topaz described the speech as "inspiring."

"He spoke of how every little step towards nonviolent solutions is backed by multitudes, all of those who have come before and worked for peace. Consider the lineage of Gandhi and King, and we never need to feel alone, Roots Kelso said.

The address was followed by a Gandhi-King multimedia tribute, "Bombay to Birmingham," and a World Peace Flag Ceremony, with youths displaying flags to represent the national community. "
