Speaker: Jason Porath
Musician: The Mighty Orq
The instant one associates a social movement with violence, it suddenly fails to meet the gold standards of Gandhi or Martin Luther King Jr.'s non-violent examples -- but is that a fair comparison? In a half-hour talk, author Jason Porath investigates the differences in perception and reality of historical social movements.
In a past life, Jason Porath used to work on animated movies such as How to Train Your Dragon 2, The Croods, and Kung Fu Panda 2. In 2014, he left the film industry to start Rejected Princesses: a blog-turned-book-series that celebrates the lives of little-known women with thoroughly-researched and illustrated histories of their lives. He lives in Los Angeles, where he works on screenplays and novels, in between singing a lot of karaoke.
