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.
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.
