Spotlight on Activism and Resistance

Being the change. Fighting for freedom. Making some noise. Speaking truth to power. Acting up. Here are ones that weren't content to stand to the side of history. They put it on the line for a greater cause, civil rights, a fair wage, or just because they'd had enough. Some achieved success in their day, while others would never enjoy the fruits of their labor. Either way, with these images—zeitgeist-capturing documentaries, historic reconstructions, and fables of defiance—the legacy of their struggle endures.
