I’ve been reading Stride Towards Freedom and thinking a lot about the moral power and strategic savvy of non-violent social movements.

Intellectually, it’s fairly easy to understand why non-violence is the correct way. But to read how Dr. King and countless others actually used it to resist violent oppression is profoundly inspiring. Through his actions, so many ordinary people found the extraordinary courage inside them to do what is right.
