The mission of the Institute is to provide a platform for citizens of every walk of life to learn the important principles that underlie nonviolent advocacy. Central to this mission is a push to provide future leaders and “change agents” with opportunities to explore the moral, ethical, and theological imperatives for justice and human rights for all people.

Simply put, our Mission is to change lives for the better, in a real and permanent way.

Joseph & Evelyn Lowery Institute for Justice & Human Rights

Today the Atlanta Public Schools hosted the 16th annual Joseph Lowery Lecture Series on Civic Engagement

We welcomed the Jamaican Association for Debating and Empowerment (JADE), an international debate team located in Jamaica, that is currently touring Georgia for several debates. They faced the renowned Morehouse College Debate Team. Audience members were able to interact with debate participatants on the topic: "This house believes that kneeling is a legitimate form of protest against police brutality.”

On this day in 1859, abolitionist John Brown led a small group on a raid against a federal armory in Harpers Ferry in an attempt to start an armed slave revolt and destroy the institution of slavery. Painting by Robert Shetterly from Americans Who Tell the Truth: bit.ly/Xgxurq The quote on the painting reads: "I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with Blood. I had, as I now think vainly, flattered myself that without very much bloodshed it might be done." The painting, one of the newest in the series, is also available as a poster. Here are more resources for teaching outside the textbook about Brown: bit.ly/II1KTm
