Wherever There's a Fight:
A History of Civil Liberties in California

Wherever There’s a Fight collage

Throughout the months of April and May, the Menlo Park Main Library will be hosting a special exhibition based on the book Wherever There’s a Fight: How Runaway Slaves, Suffragists, Immigrants, Strikers, and Poets Shaped Civil Liberties in California by Elaine Elinson and Stan Yogi.

Spanning the period from the Gold Rush to the post-9/11 era, the exhibition tells the hidden stories of unsung heroes and heroines throughout California who stood up for their rights in the face of social hostility, physical violence, economic hardship, and political stonewalling.

In addition to the informational panels on display throughout the library, we will be hosting a series of related events, beginning with an appearance by the book’s authors. All of the events are free to attend.
