It was an excellent program. Dr. King, Varsha Das (Director of the Gandhi Museum), and George Matthew (Director of the Institute for Social Sciences) were on the dais. Dr. King traced many parallels between the approach of Barack Obama's campaign and early Presidency and the concepts of non-violence and peaceful non-cooperation espoused and lived out by Gandhi and King. Well done!
