Speaker and writer Robert Weir will share a powerful experience at the June Citizens for Peace meeting! The issues of the Civil Rights Movement have not gone away but have manifested as Human Rights issues that affect all Americans today. Thus, The March Continues! The parallels between then and now include: • Segregation then, Marginalization and Deportation now • Poll Taxes then, Legislative Disenfranchisement now • Lynchings/Beatings then, Hate Crimes now Robert’s extremely emotional presentation, which is based on his Living Legacy Pilgrimage into the Land of Slavery, will reveal how and why resilience and inspiration prevails in spite of colorism, racism, and systemic white supremacy.

Gail Presbey's presentation will cover the beginnings of Gandhi's work for nonviolence in South Africa, and will follow the lives of women who helped to shape the early nonviolent movement in the country, like Sonja Schlesin, Sarojini Naidu and Cissie Gool, among others. Gandhi was very influenced by the British suffragettes as well as South African women's protests against the pass laws. The presentation will highlight a little known chapter of Gandhi's life, and it is important to understand him as someone intent on collaborations across racial, social and gender divides. Gail M. Presbey is Professor of Philosophy at University of Detroit Mercy. Her areas of expertise are philosophy of nonviolence and African philosophy, with current studies and research on Africa, Latin America, Mohandas Gandhi’s movement, feminism, and Pan-Africanism. She engages in interdisciplinary work that involves philosophy, world history, and political theory. She has engaged in research in Kenya, South Africa, Ghana, and India, having received a two-year J. William Fulbright Senior Scholar grant (Kenya) as well as subsequent Fulbright grants (India and Brazil).
