About the Author
Charles L. Chavis, Jr., is assistant professor of conflict analysis and resolution and history and director of the John Mitchell, Jr. Program for History, Justice, and Race at the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution, George Mason University. Sixte Vigny Nimuraba is president of the Burundian Independent National Commission on Human Rights (CNIDH), a visiting scholar, and director of Violence Prevention Initiatives of the Raphaël Lemkin Genocide Prevention Program at the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution, George Mason University.
For the Sake of Peace takes the voices of established and emerging black scholars from across the global African Diaspora and places them front and center in critically examining racism in the U.S. in the early 21st century. The collection of essays, thoughtfully assembled and curated by Charles Chavis, builds on a wealth of historical scholarship and searing set of contemporary observations of being black in America and the tried and new ways of 'demanding peace.'
