The first-ever account of the struggle to develop and protect rights in the Golden State, Wherever There's a Fight captures the sweeping story of how freedom and equality have grown in California, from the gold rush right up to the precarious post-9/11 era. The book tells the stories of the brave individuals, from early Chinese immigrants subjected to discriminatory laws to those of professionals who challenged McCarthyism, who have stood up for their rights in the face of social hostility, physical violence, economic hardship, and political stonewalling.


In their presentation at Modern Times, the authors will take the audience through a virtual civil liberties tour tour of San Francisco with photos and stories of all the civil liberties hot spots that you may pass by every day, never realizing the struggles that took place there 20, 50, or 150 years ago.
