This week, we explore the social change movements of the 1945-1980 period. As we do so, we’ll be thinking more about the factors that contributed to the success of these movements and their broader significance. One of the factors that is always worth keeping in mind is the role of these movements’ leaders. As this week’s introduction points out, the movements of the 1960s and 1970s are notable for the astonishing number of highly effective leaders that helped build these movements and increase their visibility.
With that in mind, let’s first brainstorm about some of the factors that help to make effective social change leaders. Based on your experiences in life, or on what you learned during the first two weeks of the course, what specific qualities do you think are most beneficial for the leaders of social change movements to have? For example, the introduction mentions charisma, savviness, and dedication as three possible qualities that you might want to discuss. But maybe you can think of others.
