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