Angelic Troublemakers

We need, in every community, a group of angelic troublemakers. Our power is in our ability to make things unworkable. – Bayard Rustin

I have for a long time kept a folder in Evernote called “Angelic Troublemakers” filled with black and white pictures of people who are “mentors at a distance.” These are people who remind me of this quote and inspire me to action for one reason or another. These are some of the people I am inspired by. Most not around any more. Here is my list so far. I will add to them as I go.
