Jonathan and Margaret will share with you their collaboration from a historic gathering of surviving members of Dr. King’s team of colleagues and friends, along with a young generation of social justice leaders, held at Sunnylands in Rancho Mirage CA in January 2019 to honor the 90th birthday of Dr. King.  Jonathan and Margaret will also share with you their work on issues of nonviolence, diversity, inclusion and social justice at the University of San Francisco and the University of Santa Clara, respectively.


Jonathan Greenberg is the Senior Associate Director and Scholar in Residence at the Institute for Nonviolence and Social Justice at the University of San Francisco.  He co-founded the USF institute with Dr. Clarence B. Jones, who served as legal counsel, strategic advisor and draft speechwriter to Martin Luther King, Jr.   Jonathan previously taught for thirty years at Stanford Law School as a member of the Gould Center for Conflict Resolution’s Negotiation and Mediation Teaching Team.




Margaret Russell is Associate Provost for Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Santa Clara, and she chairs the University’s Council on Inclusive Excellence.  Professor Russell has been a member of the Santa Clara University School of Law faculty since 1990, and is affiliated with the University’s Center for Social Justice & Public Service, the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, and the Center for Multicultural Learning.  At Santa Clara Law School, she teaches constitutional law with a focus on race and gender, civil procedure, and contemporary legal theory.  She is also a past president of the university’s Faculty Senate, and she has served for many years on the national board of the American Civil Liberties Union.


Jonathan and Margaret have been friends for more than forty years; they were classmates together as undergraduates at Princeton University and then again at Stanford Law School.  They are thrilled to be collaborating again on new projects to help further the legacy of Dr. King.
