THE GOOD FIGHT
America's Ongoing Struggle For Justice
As covered by:
The Good Fight book (distributed by Sterling Publishing), created by New York Times best-selling authors Rick Smolan and Jennifer Erwitt, and made possible with the generous support of the Anti-Defamation League, captures 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. 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.
For those who wish to eradicate bigotry and intolerance in America, The Good Fight is a call to action.
Rick Smolan, Author of The Good Fight:
"When Jonathan Greenblatt, the CEO and National Director of the Anti-Defamation League, and I first conceived The Good Fight, we envisioned it as a retrospective, a book of history to remind every American of the inspiring progress made over the past century and to acknowledge how much further we as a nation still need to go."
