While music is his full-time profession, seeking to improve race relations nationwide has become his full-time obsession. He is the author of Klan-Destine Relationships, which he wrote after becoming the first black author to travel the country interviewing leaders and members of the Ku Klux Klan. Davis has received the Elliott-Black and MLK awards as well as numerous other local and national awards for his work in race relations, and is often sought by CNN, MSNBC, and many other media outlets as a consultant on the KKK and race relations.  The Feinberg Lecture Series is made possible through an endowment established by the late Sheldon Feinberg, a former trustee of Whittier College, and his wife, Betty, in order to invite major scholars to the College to discuss broad historic, religious, and political issues encompassed by Judaism and its role in a changing world. Previous Feinberg Lecturers include senior investigative researcher and director of special projects for the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism Joanna Mendelson, journalist and author Robin Wright, Holocaust historian Deborah E. Lipstadt, former Senate Majority Leader George J. Mitchell, U.S. Ambassador to Israel and Egypt Daniel C. Kurtzer, Dr. Judea Pearl, and Justice Richard Goldstone, among other notable individuals.

2019-02-26 19:00:00 2019-02-26 19:00:00 America/Los_Angeles Lecture: Buddhist Integration of Forest and Farm Guest speaker:Sue Darlington Professor of Anthropology and Asian Studies Dean of the School of Critical Social Inquiry Hampshire College Usually seen as incompatible, forests and farms are integrated by Buddhist environmental activists in Thailand. Monks engaged in environmental conservation see the conditions of farmers’ lives as related to how they treat the forests surrounding their farms. If farmers seek their livelihood through cash-cropping and contract farming, they see the forest as a resource in terms of land for future farms. This attitude contributes to the rapid deforestation occurring across northern Thailand’s mountainous region and a cycle of environmental degradation and economic struggle. This process is worsened by the impacts of climate change. Instead, monks work with non-governmental organizations to encourage farmers to shift to integrated agriculture, growing a mix of food crops and raising animals mimicking ecological relations, to feed themselves first and only selling the surplus. The monks teach that the forest is part of this eco-system, as it supplies water and other natural resources and must be protected. This talk examines the work of monks in Nan Province, Thailand, who teach and engage in integrated agriculture based on their interpretations of their roles as Buddhists. A.J. Villalobos Hall

Sue Darlington’s research, based on extensive fieldwork in Thailand, examines the work of Buddhist monks engaged in rural development, environmental conservation and other forms of social activism. The broader questions she addresses in her research and teaching include understanding the changing social, political, and historical contexts of religion, environmentalism and human rights, and the creative use of ritual for social change.  She also teaches about socially engaged Buddhism, religious movements, and Southeast Asian studies. She is actively involved in the struggle for human rights in Burma. A.J. Villalobos Hall
