Absolutely incredible, life-changing class. Lawson worked with MLK in the civil rights movement and was one of the leaders of the student sit-in movement during the 60s--having the chance to take a class with him was amazing. He did most of the weekly lectures and is an incredibly charismatic & critical speaker--always tying issues to institutional inequalities & injustice such as the U.S. military having bases in hundreds of countries & politicians not advocating enough for the poor. He used several case studies--such as the women's suffrage movement, the immigrant youth movement, & labor organizing--to highlight the importance of nonviolent tactics. I will forever remember this course & honestly can't believe I had this opportunity.

The grading consisted of a 10-12 pg paper, project, reflection paper, log service hours, and final. At the beginning, it sounded like a lot but honestly it isn't. The project involves helping to make a nonviolence teach in happen. My role was basically promoting the event and you only need 5 service hours so not that much. You write a 2 pg reflection on what you learned and what your experience was like. The paper isn't due until week 10 and it is straightforward. The final was easy and I studied too much for it. As long as you know the key figures of the social movements you'll be fine

I thought he was very effective. He is a civil rights activist who has led social movements since working with MLK in the 50s and 60s. He is very knowledgeable and insightful and Is open to answering questions in class. He is very kind.
