Mohandas "Mahatma" Gandhi is recognized globally as both a symbol for and a practitioner of nonviolence as a way to bring about change. Since his death in 1948, Gandhi's techniques inspired a new generation, notably the leader of peace, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., during the 20th century American civil rights movement. Join Asia Society and the Mahatma Gandhi Library-Houston for a film screening of selections from A Force More Powerful, a 1999 documentary that highlights nonviolent resistance around the world. Following the film, a panel discussion will review the impact of Gandhi's legacy, the effect of nonviolence, and connections between Asia and the U.S. This event launches Houston's yearlong Gandhi Sesquicentennial Celebrations, culminating in October 2019 with the 150th year since Gandhi's birth.

Author Ramachandra Guha's Gandhi: The Years That Changed the World, 1914-1948 is the second and concluding volume of the magisterial biography that began with the acclaimed Gandhi Before India, the definitive portrait of the life and work of Mahatma Gandhi. This volume opens with Mohandas Gandhi's arrival in Bombay in January 1915 and takes us through his epic struggles over the next three decades: to deliver India from British rule, to forge harmonious relations between India's Hindu and Muslim populations, to end the pernicious Hindu practice of untouchability, and to develop India's economic and moral self-reliance. We see how in each of these campaigns, Gandhi adapted methods of nonviolence – strikes, marches, fasts – that successfully challenged British authority, religious orthodoxy, social customs, and would influence non-violent, revolutionary movements throughout the world.
