CIVIL RIGHTS CAFÉ
Civil Rights Cafe guide our Civil Rights Café Teen Authors for Peace through the nonviolent crusades of the Civil Rights Movement. The Civil Rights Café Teen Authors for Peace determine when to engage in café-style conversations, mentorship, educational events, or other nonviolent approaches to focus on proactive strategies, effective intervention approaches, anger management skill training, peer mediation, and the development of peaceable classrooms. Civil Rights Café serve youth ages 13–18 in a nurturing environment to learn about non-violence. Civil Rights Café Teen Authors for Peace use multimedia tools to create lessons on nonviolence as we study the historical context of emotion in the Civil Rights Movement.
“I have the audacity to believe that people everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies; education and culture for their minds; and dignity, quality, and freedom for their spirit."
“Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him.”
— Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
