A Symposium with Richard "Mac" McKinney

Roger Williams University Law School, Bristol Campus: Room 283, bristol, Rhode Island

Returning home from a long career in the U.S. Marine Corps, Richard “Mac” McKinney found himself struggling under the weight of a ferocious rage fueled by 25 years of an indoctrinated hatred of Muslims. Desperate to take action in the name of his country, McKinney set out to commit an unthinkable crime against his community’s mosque. His plans took an unexpected path however when he faced his enemy head-on.

When McKinney entered the mosque, he encountered a form of resistance that he had not planned for. Something happened that day that would change him in a way he never expected.

The people whose lives he intended to take would end up saving his life. We invite students to join us to hear the Mac's story of the transformative power of kindness.
