Trained at the Highlander Center and tutored by Rev. Dr. James Lawson — whom Martin Luther King called the greatest nonviolent theorist in the world – Rev. Sekou has trained thousands in the tradition of nonviolent resistance throughout the United States. Having worked with nonviolent activists for six years as staff trainer for the Fellowship of Reconciliation, Rev. Sekou was the lead trainer in Charlottesville 14 months ago. His workshop-style trainings give organizers understanding of the moral philosophy of militant nonviolent civil disobedience, the real-time tactics, and the infrastructure necessary to support movement leaders who risk arrest.

Rev. Sekou is currently on tour for his “In Times Like These” recording, released in 2017. He is the author of “Urbansouls: Meditations on Youth, Hip Hop, and Religion” and “Gods, Gays, and Guns: Essays on Religion and the Future of Democracy.
