This is the title of the annual Swarthmore Lecture, delivered in August 2020 by the disability rights activist, academic and broadcaster Tom Shakespeare.
In the lecture Tom asks how we face all the very real, terrible things that happen in our world and still have hope. How did Friends in the past have hope in dark times and how can we have it today? He reflects on the nature of hope, our reasons to hope, and how we can preach hope through the way we live our lives.
