The Gandhi/King/Ikeda exhibit
is a nationally renowned exhibit extolling humanist virtues and its champions, organized by the Soka Gakkai International-USA. Though Gandhi, King and Ikeda each came from different ethnic and religious backgrounds, they have all shared a common vision. They have each, in their respective lifetimes, fought for non-violence, human rights and world peace: Mohandas K. Gandhi led the campaign against the colonial rule of the British Empire, Martin Luther King fought against the injustices and prejudice built against people of color in America, and Daisaku Ikeda encourages millions of civilians in the world to live a life of dignity and to work for world peace.

 

Gandhi, King, and Ikeda are men who have lived with principle, and who have based their action on non-violent means. The unique idea of having the three figures together as an exhibit is of particular significance because it reminds us that peace and justice exist beyond all human-laid boundaries. 

 

Originally commissioned in 1999 by Dean Lawrence Carter of the Morehouse College (Atlanta, GA), the exhibit has been held at universities such as University of Missouri, Ohio State University, Cal State Los Angeles and University of Oregon Princeton University and University of California, Berkeley. The exhibit provides a holistic look at Gandhi, King, and Ikeda's respective non-violence movements and their accomplishments and contributions to world peace.

 

The exhibit is on displayed at Stanford University campus from January  10 - January  29, 2004
