Arun Gandhi to speak at MHCC

Mahatma Gandhi's grandson to speak on family history of nonviolence


Arun Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, will speak at Mount Hood Community College at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 22.

Gandhi was born in 1934 in Durban, South Africa. Growing up under apartheid, Gandhi was beaten by white South Africans for being too black and black South Africans for being too white, his biography says.

Instead of seeing revenge Gandhi followed the non-violent path of his grandfather, the famous Indian leader Mohandas “Mahatma” Gandhi.

Tickets are $5. Mt. Hood Community College students with current Mt. Hood CC identification are free.

The college is at 26000 SE Stark St. and the speech will be in the theater.
