“Martin Luther King, powerfully tells the story of the civil rights movement through his words.  Throughout, Rev. Lawson speaks eloquently to the power of the movement’s ideals of nonviolence and economic justice and their continuing relevance for our times.”

Kevin Gaines
Professor of Africana Studies and History, Cornell University

“Told with passion and sharp political insight, Love and Solidarity brings to the fore the voices of people on the front lines of social change, most especially James Lawson, who is a decades-long practitioner of nonviolence.  It is a must see for students, teachers, and activists to think about the legacy of civil rights activism and to understand the roots of contemporary political organizing.”
