Rev. James Lawson and the Nashville Sit-Ins

This past week, Rev. James Lawson – the prolific civil rights leaders and nonviolent action trainer – gave the opening keynote address at the Fletcher Summer Institute for the Advanced Study of Nonviolent Conflict.  In this address he talks about his experience working with youth in Nashville and training them in the techniques and strategies of nonviolent action; in this case, lunch-counter sit-ins, boycotts, picketing, marching, and making public statements.
