Anthony, Bob Dylan, Langston Hughes, Chief Joseph, Muhammad Ali, along with unknown veterans, union workers, abolitionists, and many others never featured in high school textbooks. Celebrates the extraordinary possibilities for creating social change that ordinary people have realized throughout the course of our nation's rich but often ignored history of dissent and protest.

Amazing. I Loved Kerry Washington share Sojourner Truth's " Ain't I A Woman". Although there is humor in it, they should have told the audience to stay quiet until the end.
