Civil Disobedience Discussion

January 16 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In honor of MLK Day, join Concord historian Richard Smith and Robbins House Programming Director Nikki Turpin for a conversation about Thoreau’s legacy of civil disobedience. Thoreau’s arrest for non-payment of taxes as a protest against slavery laid the ground for his essay Civil Disobedience, which Martin Luther King Jr., Mohandas Gandhi, Cesar Chavez, and other activists read and cited in support of their activism. Meets in the Visitor Center Gallery Walden Pond Visitors Center 915 Walden St, Concord, MA.
