Celebrating decades of American struggle


What do past struggles say about being American and the future of the nation? Award-winning photojournalist Rick Smolan and Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt joined Salon to present their new book, “The Good Fight: America’s Ongoing Struggle for Justice,” a visual anthology documenting the history of the struggle for equality in America. Nearly 200 iconic photos, an accompanying video app and original essays by a wide range of contributors, from George Takei to former Time Magazine Bureau Chief Richard Bernstein, add up to their new book chronicling struggles and protests movements over 100 years for equal rights, including those of Native Americans, African Americans, Japanese Americans, Jewish Americans, American women, Muslim Americans, disabled Americans, LGBTQ Americans and Latino Americans.

Watch the video above for an exclusive look at the book and a conversation with Greenblatt and Smolan around how many of these victories feel at risk right now.
