To mark Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Concord Museum Forums presents a conversation with Congressman Ro Khanna. His grandfather, Amarnath Vidyalankar, was inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s act of civil disobedience and was jailed as part of Gandhi’s independence movement. Congressman Khanna and Museum Director Tom Putnam will have a wide-ranging conversation on Mahatma Gandhi, Henry David Thoreau, Martin Luther King Jr., and the significance of non-violent protest in our democracy today.
