Alycee Lane, author of Nonviolence Now!, will participate in a panel at ABC Home about the role of Buddhism and spirituality in the struggle for racial justice. Thich Nhat Hanh was instrumental in Dr. King's decision to speak out against the Vietnam War. When Dr. King was assassinated, Thich Nhat Hanh vowed to redouble his efforts to build the Beloved Community they had discussed together and to continue teaching the importance of "being peace" in the non-violent struggle for peace and justice. This event is part of the Miracle of Mindfulness Tour.
We'll be at the festival again celebrating the event's tenth year. Come to our borough and say hello!
