Sinopse

My Trip to the Land of Gandhi: A Mexican-American’s Journey to the Legacy of Nonviolent Resistance is a memoir about a Mexican mother’s son growing up in poverty in America and his pursuit of the human right to education through the legacy of Gandhian nonviolence. In 1959, after the successful Montgomery Bus Boycott, Dr. King wrote an important article in Ebony magazine about his journey to India to study the work and life of Gandhi and the Indian freedom struggle and how to apply those lessons back home to redeem America’s democracy. The article was entitled “My Trip to the Land of Gandhi.” In the article, King states, “I left India more convinced than ever before that nonviolent resistance is the most potent weapon available to oppressed people in their struggle for freedom.” This book is about this young son’s metaphoric “Trip to the Land of Gandhi” and how this journey helped him confront the social issues of today with the great legacy of nonviolence resistance. The first item on the agenda was the $90,000 in student loan debt that was handed to him along with his law school degree. Erik Olson Fernández’s journey and his strategic insights are a call to action to finish the “unfinished business” of the 1960s with a nonviolent struggle for the human right to quality free public education in the Americas.
