TEACHING PEACE by Colman McCarthy

March 14, 2015

Colman McCarthy spoke about his book, Teaching Peace, at Politics & Prose on Saturday, March 14, 2015.

In 1982 McCarthy, the longtime Washington Post syndicated columnist, decided not just to preach nonviolence, but to teach it. He offered peace studies classes in some of D.C. s poorest schools, courses which became the foundation for his Center for Teaching Peace. In this companion volume to his classic I’d Rather Teach Peace, McCarthy presents some of the letters exchanged over the years with his former students, sharing their thoughts on a wide range of social justice issues.
