Making Contact - James Lawson: Non-Violent Warrior

The 1960 lunch counter sit-ins catapulted civil rights into the nation's consciousness.  But they weren't just spontaneous protests; they came after years of planning and studying techniques of non-violent civil disobedience.  The chief architect of the strategy was James Lawson, who worked along side Martin Luther King Jr., and was with him only hours before King was killed. On this edition, we sit down with Reverend James Lawson to get his reflections on the past, and his assessment of the current movements for justice in the US.

Featuring: Reverend James Lawson, civil rights leader and United Methodist Pastor
