The game show portion of the podcast centered on inspiring historical quotes.Facing History's new resource, From Reflection to Action: A Choosing to Participate Toolkit, includes a curated set of incredible quotes you will want to use over and over! 
 
Thank you, Overthrowing Education, for the great conversation!
