Spanning the period from the California Gold Rush to the post-9/11 eras, Wherever There’s a Fight showcases the stories of heroes and heroines throughout California who stood up for their rights in the face of social hostility, physical violence, and economic hardship. Some became well-known voices and activists, such as author Upton Sinclair and concert artist and actor Paul Robeson; others were ordinary people capable of extraordinary acts, who fought violations of their civil liberties, reflecting the prejudices and political winds of the times.
Designed for general audiences, the exhibition poses questions that go to the root of civil liberties, tapping the imagination with historical information, archival photographs, imagery, and insightful quotes. The narrative explores our Constitutional rights and a history of discrimination. Topics include: citizenship, slavery, voting, land ownership, unlawful arrests, dissension, religion, censorship, and education.
