School Night: Anger Management / Working with Rage
School Night: Anger Management / Working with Rage
Homeroom Chicago's School Night is back to devote an entire episode to rage. How can we use anger against racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, and other systems of environmental and institutional violence in our culture? How does one manage one's feelings of anger while avoiding giving into apathy, fatigue, or nihilism? Topics will include axe throwing, public humiliation, and playing with fire.
