Excellent talk by Dr. Howard. I hadn't heard much about Rev Lawson's work before. It was great to learn about that, and also learn about MK Gandhi's correspondence with him regarding the fight for equality by black Americans during the 40's, 50's, 60's. Much gratitude to Dr. Pappu for organizing this talk.
