On the Force of Truth

Thursday, November 01, 2018, 6:00-7:00pm

Part of BAM 2018 Next Wave Festival series Speaking Truth to Power

Co-presented by Onassis Cultural Center New York and BAM

With asha bandele, Tilde Björfors, and Anand Giridharadas 

In conversation with Charles W. Mills 

In conjunction with Satyagraha

The concept of satyagraha, or nonviolent resistance, is described by Gandhi as “the Force which is born of Truth.” Author asha bandele, artistic director Tilde Björfors, writer Anand Giridharadas, and philosopher Charles W. Mills look at the birth and shape of Gandhi’s movement and locate it on a historical continuum of social justice movements, from the writings of Tolstoy, to Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement, to Black Lives Matter.
