This Wednesday, Oct 2, the life of Mahatma Gandhi will be showcased by UTSA faculty and scholars. On what would’ve been Gandhi’s 150th birthday, the event will highlight his activism and anticolonial work that cemented his legacy as one of the most prominent humanitarians of all time.
The event will begin with a peace walk at the Sombrilla and roadrunners are encouraged to wear an article of white clothing to stand in solidarity with the nonviolent humanitarianism Gandhi died for. The peace walk takes place at 12:00pm until 1:00pm at the Sombrilla.
Later in the afternoon, professors across South Texas will be at the Main Building in room 0.016 for a panel surrounding Gandhi’s nonviolent humanitarianism and decolonization activism in a contemporary society.
The event will conclude with a film screening at 7:00pm.
