We are pleased to announce Dr. Bernard Lafayette, Jr. is this year's recipient of the 21st Annual Estelle Witherspoon Lifetime Achievement Award.


It is an understatement to describe Dr. LaFayette as passionate about the philosophy and methodology of Kingian Nonviolence! He is a Civil Rights Movement activist, minister, educator, lecturer, and an authority on the strategy of Nonviolent Social Change. He has devoted his life to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's final 1968 marching orders, to “institutionalize and internationalize Nonviolence.
