Connections: Grandchildren of Gandhi and Dorothy Day

Sep 22, 2017

The grandchildren of two of the most prominent world figures will come together in Rochester for one night -- but first, they're on Connections.

Gandhi and Dorothy Day worked for social justice through nonviolence. Their grandchildren, Arun Gandhi, and Martha and Kate Hennessy, will speak about their family legacies. It's particularly timely, with violent protests happening around the world. In studio:

  • Arun Gandhi, grandson of Gandhi
