Papantonio: Social Change Requires Citizen Participation

At a glance, there was nothing extraordinary that you could notice about Harriet Beecher Stowe. She was a mother raising children in a small house on a small Connecticut farm. She wasn’t a well known political figure, and although she was an abolitionist, she wasn’t even regarded as a significant leader of that movement.

But what she was, was someone just like you, who had the same kind of moral compass – the same level of disgust and anger when she noticed people not treating other people very well.
