"In my life, I have seen great horrors and great achievements. In the nine decades I have lived, I have never seen a crisis as urgent and grave as the crisis facing our nation today." - Dr. Clarence B. Jones
How can we hold fast to Dr. King's legacy of nonviolence in this time of great suffering and social unrest? How can we move forward toward racial justice and reconciliation when people of color continue to be victims of systemic police violence?
Students, staff, faculty, and alumni are invited to join Dr. Clarence B. Jones, Director of USF’s Institute for Nonviolence and Social Justice, to discuss the urgent questions you are struggling with, and engage in a community dialogue concerning how we can move forward together through this crisis.
Dr. Clarence B. Jones served as lawyer, strategic advisor, and draft speechwriter to Martin Luther King, Jr. from 1960 until Dr. King's assassination on April 4, 1968.
