Spring 2023 Emeriti Lecture with John Brown Childs
Peace Teachers In and From Soledad Prison
Eighteen years ago Distinguished Professor Emeritus John Brown Childs began offering courses on “Transcommunal Peacemaking and Cooperation” in Soledad Correctional Facility. Transcommunality is rooted in the Native American philosophy of unity and diversity created by the peacemaker Deganawidah in the 15th century. The incarcerated men in Soledad have responded positively to transcommunality. The original students now are the teachers. In these hard times of hatred and violence, the Soledad Peace Teachers offer key examples of non-violence and mutually respectful cooperation.
