About the course:

Sophie Scholl left her classes to secretly distribute pamphlets against Adolf Hitler; eleven-year-old Malala Yousafzai lived amidst the Taliban while blogging about their brutality. Human history is filled with individuals who were ready to risk everything for a common good. What motivated them? What were the effects of their civic courage? What can our bravest contemporaries and fallen heroes teach us about how to live? The course includes in-class interviews with courageous guests.
