We Will Be Heard, Voices in the Struggle for Constitutional Rights Past and Present; Bud and Ruth Schultz
Freedom of expression, a fundamental right in any democracy, has often been denied to Americans whose beliefs challenge the status quo. "We Will Be Heard" features over 90 stirring portraits and first-person accounts of Americans targeted for speaking out against government policies and actions. America's complex history of dissent has been made by both well-known and lesser-known individuals, such as Fred Korematsu, former Japanese internment-camp detainee, who campaigned for prisoner rights at Guantanamo; Stokely Carmichael, who fought for African American civil rights; and Janet Nocek, who resisted the FBI's controversial attempt to subpoena library records. At a time when constitutional rights have become one of the most hotly debated issues in the United States, "We Will Be Heard" reveals the remarkable courage and tenacity of more than 90 individuals who refused to be silenced.
