MLK and the Power of Nonviolence


Broadcast Jan. 17, 2021 at 4:00 p.m.

In time for MLK Day, we look back at the stunning display of forgiveness and nonviolence by the traumatized family members of Mother Emanuel church congregants, who were gunned down in 2015, in the wake of the gunman’s conviction.


In the second part of the program, we hear stories of peacemakers who draw from their diverse lives and religious traditions as a basis for breaking down barriers and promoting conflict resolution.
