The It's In The Action Curriculum

It’s in the Action, a 16-week course tracing Dr. C.T. Vivian’s footsteps as a nonviolent warrior and American icon, explores his remarkable life, examines his work and his teachings, and asks how his example can guide us today. Dr. Vivian’s passion was to fight for social justice, economic equality, and freedom for all while staying true to the principles of nonviolence. With the current political and racial climate in America, this curriculum is not only relevant but essential for equipping our future leaders in the work of creating a more equitable America. In Dr. Vivian’s own words, “Leadership is found in the action to defeat that which would defeat you… You are made by the struggle you choose.”

The Curriculum is currently being utilized at colleges and universities around the country. Schools such as Louisiana State University, Morehouse College, Georgia State, Clayton State and Emory are teaching the curriculum with great interest enthusiasm from the students. It’s in the Action Curriculum is a living monument to a civil rights icon, an American treasure, and the man Dr. Martin Luther King called “the best preacher to ever live.”
