Illinois Global Institute Event

Dr. Hakim Williams (Gettysburg College) will give a talk about education for revolutionary non-violence. An unsustainably plenteous modernity taunts our emaciated minds, bodies, and spirits. Neocoloniality, hyperconsumerism, global warming, racialized polarization, forced displacement, the Covid-19 pandemic: how much more can our planet and its inhabitants endure? Because violence, in its many forms, undergirds much of the aforementioned, we can't afford to continue investing our energies in the 'master's tools.' The planet and our very survival require the enactment of a revolutionary, justice-oriented non-violence. In this talk, Dr. Williams will outline what kind of education we need to envision and foster such a healing non-violence.
