James W. Douglass

Today on Radioactivity, Rob Lorei welcomes author and activist James W. Douglass to discuss JFK and a series of events he will be hosting this week in Sarasota and St. Pete.

Douglass will lead a retreat called “Gandhi and the Unspeakable: Will We Wake Up to Nonviolence?” He will start with Gandhi shivering on the train platform in South Africa and take retreatants all the way to Gandhi’s final confrontation with the Unspeakable. The retreat is at the Dayspring Conference Center, a wooded retreat center on the banks of the Manatee River in Ellenton. Those interested in registering should contact Barbara Richardson at (561) 307-6293 or

Those who can’t make the entire retreat can hear Douglass talk about JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters before the retreat, at 10:00 AM Saturday morning, March 29. He will examine John F. Kennedy’s miraculous turning from the edge of a nuclear holocaust to a commitment for a disarmed world, a decision that cost him his life. Cost for this session only is $5.00

The St. Petersburg reading of Project Unspeakable will take place on Sunday, March 30, 2014 at 4:00 PM, at the Studio@620, 620 1st Avenue South in St. Petersburg.
