America Ferrera and John Paul Lederach — The ingredients of social courage

In this re-broadcast of On Being, Krista Tippett speaks with John Paul Lederach, professor emeritus of international peacebuilding of the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, and Emmy-winning actress America Ferrara about the meaning of social courage and how change really happens.

“…one of the ways I understand social courage is that it takes courage to reach out to things that are not known, not well understood; that may be threatening to you; that may, in fact, pose a threat to everything you believe. So there’s a certain kind of courage that it takes to reach into that unknown.”

This segment originally aired on On Being on June 7, 2018 and re-aired on WBEZ Chicago on October 24, 2019.
