About this video


From postcards and posters to modern-day gifs and memes, citizens have always found a way to speak their minds when political and social injustice occurs. While resistance has long been part of the American national identity, the past few years have seen an upwelling of grassroots movements to combat government power. In this talk, Bonnie combines her two passions to showcase a collection of visual expressions of resistance throughout American history. In hundreds of iconic, smart, angry, clever and unforgettable images, she chronicles what truly makes America great: Citizens unafraid of speaking truth to power.
