The Angry Fallacy

Martin Luther King Jr., Harriet Beecher Stowe, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Joan of Arc, the Founding Fathers….  What do all these folks have in common? They were all human rights activists, and they were called “angry” and “crazy.” Historical heroes who fought for progress and justice were once criticized for being “angry.” First, let’s […]
