WE THE RESISTANCE

WE THE RESISTANCE

Documenting a History of Nonviolent Protest in the United States

Edited by Michael G. Long. This eye-opening volume reframes American history by focusing on the nonviolent approaches implemented by individuals and movements—from the pre-Revolutionary War era to the present day—to resist unjust, unfair, and immoral policies and practices. Selections illustrate the interconnectedness of nonviolent movements as well as the connections between current actions and those of the recent past and long ago. Illuminating stories reveal protesters' methods, opponents, failures, and successes, from sit-ins to tree sitting, Puritans to Wall Street bankers, slave petitions to enfranchisement for women, police practices to the #MeToo movement, and more. Interspersed throughout are historic images and photographs. Grades 8 and up. Source notes. City Lights. 608 pages. ©2019.
