American Revolutionary Conversation Starter: Grace Lee Boggs says, “One of the difficulties when you’re coming out of oppression and out of a bitter past is that you get a concept of the messiah and you expect too much from your leaders. And I think we have to get to that point that we are the leaders we’ve been looking for.” Can you think of an example when people have relied too much on their leaders and not enough on themselves? What was the result? What would the implications be for your life and work if you thought of yourself as a leader?
