The Gandhi-King Community

For Global Peace with Social Justice in a Sustainable Environment

After arriving from Mumbai in Ahmadabad, we were greeted by Gandhian scholar Kiran Sethi and her Riverside School students.

Our first stop was the Gujurat Vidyapith University founded by Mahatma Gandhi in 1920.We were given a tour by Vidyapith students who train and study in “the way of Gandhi” at the University. John Lewis, Harris Wofford, and Martin Luther King III addressed the students. We had a wonderful outdoor buffet lunch preceding the talk which allowed everyone to mingle.

After the lunch we visited the Sabarmati Ashram founded by Mahatma Gandhi. The Ashram was the starting point of the historic Salt March. After a press conference was held there was a panel discussion with representatives from the Muslim and Hindu communities, on the legacy and contemporary significance of Gandhi and King.

After a walking tour of the Ashram we went to the Hotel. Later that evening I lectured on “King and Gandhi: Their Message Today.”
