William DiCanzio's new play, "Rustin and the March," on Bayard Rustin and his important role in organizing the 1963 March on Washington, is being performed in open readings in and around the city of Philadelphia this year. Madeline Schaefer attended one of these readings and spoke with DiCanzio, the play's future director, Benjamin Lloyd, and the play's leading actor, Frank X, about the power and legacy of Bayard Rustin's message of nonviolence.
Calling Forth the Goodness is a podcast series produced through AFSC's Friends relations blog, Acting in Faith. It features the voices of communities that work together to create change.
In this episode, "From the inside out," Madeline sits down with participants in AFSC's Friend of a Friend mentoring program that works in Baltimore prisons. The program teaches skills in nonviolent communication and conflict resolution, while empowering men to advocate for change both inside and outside of the prison walls.
