Nelson Mandela: Before Prisoner-Beyond President

The costs of participating in—much less leading—movements for social change are always high.  I’m remembering Olson’s Logic of Collective Action and a slew of rational choice perspectives on why people do/don’t participate in protest, which can be a bit depressing for those who have great hopes for improving society through collective action.  Maybe the best way to inspire is to remember the “great ones” who have paid the cost and seen tremendous results come from their sacrifice.  Maybe that’s why this infographic (produced by to commemorate Nelson Mandela International Day) caught my attention.  Maybe it will provide a little spark for you too.
