PROTEST by Jamie Fishman


By (author): Jamie Fishman


Subtitle: Images From the Streets


The United States has a long history of political and social protests. In the 1960s, the civil rights, womens' and anti-war movements all coalesced on the streets of America. These movements were followed in the 1970s and 1980s with protests that supported the environment, demanded AID's research and housing, railed against the Reagan-era incursions in Central America and demanded an end to South African Apartheid. In the spirit of these historic protest movements, this book – which begins with the 1980s and takes the viewer up through current political issues, including reproductive rights, police brutality and the existential threat posed by Trump – opens a door to the humanity of mass protest movements, focusing on the people, their messages, and their passion. 

The imagery of protests can be a powerful amplification of the messages from these movements.  Without recorded images that can be spread to a much broader audience, the message is limited to only those physically present. These images help tell an important American story.
