A recent article from the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University

“Leadership is the activity of getting people to open their eyes to the reality they are a part of, the context they are a part of, whether that is an organization or a country,” [Alma Blount] said. “It’s the opening up to complexity with no cookie-cutter answers. It’s a learning activity that you engage in with others."

"I have found that without organizations, coalitions, and leadership teams, there is no collective strategy or accountability. An independent or freelance activist may share their opinion, and it may be an informed one, but if these words are not spoken in consultation or conversation with people on the ground, they are limited as a representation of a movement’s thinking and work."
--Barbara Ransby writing about Ella Baker's vision

"King argued that our species needs to undergo a dramatic ethical shift in how we think about our relationship to resources, now that we no longer face scarcity. “The contemporary tendency,” King protested in Where Do We Go From Here, “is to base our distribution on scarcity, which has vanished, and to compress our abundance into the overfed mouths of the middle and upper classes until they gag with superfluity.” "

MLK's "Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?" is recommended reading for the 2017-2019 Friday Fellowship curriculum.
