George Lakey presents DANCING WITH HISTORY at Civic Media Center

December07 at Civic Media Center in Gainesville, FL

In his new memoir Dancing with History: A Life for Peace and Justice, Quaker activist George Lakey circles back over seven decades, telling stories from the center of many history-making events — from his first arrest in the Civil Rights era to recent marches for climate justice, with actions for LGBTQ rights and labor justice in between.

Recently retired from Swarthmore College, Lakey was the Eugene Lang Visiting Professor for Issues of Social Change. In 2018, Lakey published How We Win: A Guide to Nonviolent Direct Action Campaigning.
