Bernie Meyer “The American Gandhi” reports back from India trip — with videos
January 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PST
Bernie Meyer from Olympia FOR is widely known as “the American Gandhi” (and wrote a book by that title). He has studied and become an expert on Mohandas K. (“the Mahatma”) Gandhi, and he makes public appearances as Gandhi, bringing his message from the first half of the 1900s up to our current time.
India’s top Gandhi scholars keep inviting him to travel to India and make very prominent public appearances there as “the American Gandhi,” bringing Gandhi’s authentic message (with updates) to universities, major news media, international youth gatherings, and other places. He has traveled there 15 times.
After each trip, he reports back to the Olympia community with a summary of what he did and updated insights into the current situation in India and the world.
He will do this again at 7:00 pm Sunday January 13 at Traditions Café, 5th & Water SW, in downtown Olympia. This public appearance will include videos.
It is free and open to the public.
