America's Ongoing Struggle for Justice is a compendium of the injustices and successes experienced by African Americans, Native Americans, Jews, Muslims, Women, the LGBTQ community, Latin Americans, Asian Americans and the disabled. Seen through the eyes of the world's leading photographers over the past century, this book helps put today into perspective. The Good Fight vividly depicts the human face of America's sporadically violent, often triumphant, always risky struggle to fulfill the promise of freedom and equality for all. Fought in the streets, the courthouse, and the corridors of Congress, it is a story that has become America's own morality play, illustrated here through more than 180 memorable photographs, nearly 60 embedded videos, over a dozen compelling essays plus examples of music and lyrics that rallied America's resistance to injustice.
For those who wish to eradicate bigotry and intolerance in America, The Good Fight is a call to action. It shows us how much we as a nation have accomplished; it also reminds us of the fragility of our success and how quickly this hard-fought progress can slip away if we do not remain vigilant. In addition, The Good Fight features a smartphone app that enables readers to point their smartphones or tablets at over 60 photos to immediately stream online video clips, including TED Talks, that vividly bring each story to life. This timely book captures the struggles—and the successes—experienced by women, African Americans, Native Americans, Jews, Muslims, the LGBTQ community, Latinos, Asian Americans, and the disabled. Along with the eloquent images and graphics, The Good Fight includes short guest essays from individuals representing each group. For more information, visit www.thegoodfightbook.org.
