Waging Peace: Global Adventures of a Lifelong Activist - Chapter 2

David Hartsough knows how to get in the way. He has used his body to block Navy ships and trains loaded with munitions; he has marched with mothers confronting violent regimes and stood with refugees threatened by death squads. Waging Peace is a testament to the difference one person can make. Inspired by the examples of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., Hartsough has spent his life experimenting with the power of active nonviolence. This is a recording of Waging Peace: Global Adventures of a Lifelong Activist, written by David Hartsough, read by Stewart Burns.

University podcast

Voting Rights and the Constitution

Each year, on September 17, Americans celebrate Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. In addition, September 17-23 is also recognized as Constitution Week. During this time, Americans are encouraged to reflect on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and what it means to be a U.S. citizen. Join Dr. Stewart Burns for an informative session on Voting Rights and the Constitution – where we’ve been and where we are now. Dr. Burns is a distinguished historian of the Civil Rights Movement and other U.S. social movements and a member of Union Institute & University’s Ph.D. faculty.
