Event Navigation

The Indian Cultural Society and the Museum present an evening in honor of Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday, Gandhi Jayanti (officially October 2). The event begins with a panel discussion, which will explore the American experience with a diverse group of second-generation Americans.

Following the panel discussion, the Museum will host the annual Gandhi Jayanti poster contest at 4PM. Each year, students from across the area submit artwork and essays demonstrating the influence of Gandhi on Martin Luther King, Jr., and the contributions of each leader to worldwide civil rights.
