REVOLUTIONARY SPIRITUALITY: The Spiritual Foundation of Social Protest - Black History Month

In honor of Black History Month, my guest was Dr. Cocoa Welton, founder of the Los Angeles based Moriah Institute. Dr. Welton is a Global Lecturer, teacher and experienced workshop facilitator who has been speaking locally and internationally for decades on topics as varied as socio-politics, human behavioral motivations, and the intersection of science, philosophy and religion. Dr. Welton was shaped by the Black Nationalist movement of the 1960s and influenced by the teachings of Marxism and Science of Mind, amongst other things. He has studied both Eastern and Western religions, in addition to the works of Dr. Albert Einstein, Dr. Stephen Hawking, Dr. Carl Sagan, and Dr. Michio Kaku, amongst many others. We discussed Dr. Welton's take on Black History Month, the black community and discussed his view that the foundation of the social protest that is currently taking place in the world is really a spiritual impulse moving through humanity and the planet. This program originally aired on 2/27/12. For more information or to contact Dr. Welton, send an e-mail to this program at revolution@kyrs.org.
