Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs B. Hoy

If you are serious about changing society, study revolutions!

Revolutions define some of the most important events in human history. Why do they happen? How they happen? Who they happen to? And most importantly, what happens next?

Be at the tipping point of history, where everything changes.

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." JFK, 1962
