“James Lawson, advisor to Martin Luther King and nonviolent theorist, 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.”
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.”

“‘Love & Solidarity’ is a moving portrayal of a champion of non-violent resistance to oppression and injustice. Rev. Lawson, much like Dr. King, has proved himself to be as much a labor leader as a human rights advocate through his deeply felt and very practical solidarity with those who suffer the indignities of capitalism. ‘Love & Solidarity’ is about commitment and dedication over the long haul, as it is also about the philosophy and practice of non-violence. I am sure that you will be as gripped as was I.”
