This seminar will examine the strategic ways in which leaders have sought to institutionalize their activism and public dissent. The class will utilize an interactive discussion format. On a macro-level, the focus will include founders of civil and human rights organizations and other social change pressure groups. On a micro-level, we will contrast leadership roles of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his co-founding of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and Nelson Mandela and his leadership role in the African National Congress (ANC); and historic election as the first fully democratic president of South Africa.

The visit begins at Yokohama, a vibrant and cosmopolitan port city, where the first American missionaries laid their feet in 1859. We will visit the archives there and participate in gatherings with students and teachers at Ferris High School/University. The journey continues to Fukui, the home of Rutgers’ first Japanese student, to experience some of traditional Japan with Zen meditation at the temple, Japanese papermaking and more. We will participate in a Fukui University seminar and engage in activities with the students there. We conclude at Tokyo, the ever-changing capital city of Japan, as we follow the footsteps of Rutgers alumnus, William E. Griffis, and others who witnessed its rapid modernization in the late nineteenth century.
