Video of a class session. Lawson finishes his discussion of the several dimensions of the American civil rights movement by talking about the idea that the government should take responsibility for public well-being, and finally about direct action. He discusses the influence of the movement in the U.S. and around the world, and ways in which it failed--especially by not dismantling the system of racism. He talks about Gandhi and especially about Martin Luther King, Jr., and about the relationship between nonviolence and Christianity. He responds to student questions. en
