What do an Indian nationalist, an American civil rights leader and a Buddhist philosopher have in common? While this may sound like the set-up to a joke, it's actually a question Boise State University invites you to answer.
Gandhi, King, Ikeda: A Legacy of Building Peace is an exhibition of photographs exploring and reflecting the connections and common themes in the lives of three of the greatest peacemakers in history.
The series, which begins Monday, Feb. 3 with a lecture from Dr. Lawrence Carter on Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. and Daisaku Ikeda, has been presented in dozens of cities across the country during the past few years, and covers the three leaders' early careers and significant moments which highlight their importance in shaping the 20th century.
Carter, dean of the M.L. King Jr. International Chapel at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Ga., will present the Gandhi, King, Ikeda Award at a ceremony in the Boise State Student Union Building's Jordan Ballroom from 3:30-5 p.m., Monday, Feb. 3, followed by a gallery reception from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. The show runs through Sunday, Feb. 23.
