Kazu Haga, Bernard LaFayette Jr., David C. Jehnsen: Healing Resistance (2020, Parallax Press) 5 stars

I picked this off my TBR shelf and thought oh, this might be interesting, and it turns out that this is EXACTLY what I needed to read today.

"I have to believe that it is possible to do things differently. That it is possible to build a movement as 'disruptive as a riot,' yet deeply grounded in love and understanding. A resistance movement that sees its purpose in healing the wounds of society. This fractal nature of conflict is one of the reasons why we have been able to use the same exact curriculum of Kingian Nonviolence in institutions like prisons and schools, in movement settings where activists are working on systemic transformation, or in community settings where people simply want to get along with their families."
