ATHENAUM SYMPOSIA: ARUN GANDHI

Grandson of Matama Ghandi, Author and Activist

Monday, October 14, 2013
Globe Hall, Germantown Campus

Arun Gandhi was born in Durban, South Africa on April 14, 1934. As a person of Indian heritage, Arun was demeaned by Europeans for not being white, ostracized by Africans for not being black, and subject to racially motivated violence from extremists in both groups.  From 1946 to 1948, Arun lived in India with his grandfather Mahatma Gandhi. His grandfather's teachings strongly influenced Arun’s perspectives on the significance of non-violence in the resolution of conflict.  Arun decided to be guided by the principles of his grandfather and to dedicate his life to ending senseless violence and to defending those whose human rights are threatened.

This event is free and open to the public.
