Rev. James Lawson’s work as a theologian, pastor, and social-change activist has inspired hope and liberation for more than sixty years, including during the time he worked on FOR’s staff. To hear and see him speak is to experience the power of the prophetic tradition in the African American and social gospel. In Revolutionary Nonviolence, Michael K. Honey and Kent Wong reflect on Rev. Lawson’s talks and dialogues, from his speeches at the Nashville sit-in movement in 1960 to his lectures in the current UCLA curriculum. This volume provides a comprehensive introduction to Rev. Lawson’s teachings on how to center nonviolence in successfully organizing for change. Published in February 2022.
