Dr. Bernard LaFayette, Jr. spends time with students of CT Experiential Learning Center (CELC).  They listened intently, captivated by his stories of being in Selma, Alabama as he ran the Voting Rights Campaign; lived within extremely difficult, even life-threatening situations; and how through nonviolence, he worked with others to instigate change.

Dr. LaFayette spoke about how when one devotes oneself to a cause, when one is willing to give up his life to that cause, then no other can ever take that life because it was already freely given.  He asked students to consider what they each could give to the world to make a difference.  Students are pondering this.  Stay tuned for their writings and thoughts …
