Wherever There’s a Fight: How Runaway Slaves, Suffragists, Immigrants, Strikers and Poets Shaped Civil Liberties in California
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.
It connects the experiences of early Chinese immigrants subjected to discriminatory laws and expulsion to those of professors who challenged McCarthyism at UC Berkeley and
San Francisco State to workers who fought for union contracts on the docks and in the fields.
With vivid, illustrated stories, the authors will take you on a tour of key civil liberties sites in the Bay Area – places you may have passed every day without realizing the hidden history they hold.
