On the Mindless Menace of Violence - Zen Pencils

Zen Pencils 188

Zen Pencils never fails to provide meaningful material. In #188, Gavin has illustrated an excerpt from one of Robert F. Kennedy's most important speeches, titled ‘On the mindless menace of violence’, the theme of a speech that JFK gave on April 5, 1968, the day after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.

RFK's words and the Zen Pencils illustrations would serve as a great introduction to a lesson/classroom discussion about the racial strife and animus that exploded into violence in Charlottesville this past weekend.
