Mass Humanities and Harvard Book Store welcome award-winning historian, journalist, and playwright JEFF BIGGERS for a discussion of his latest book, "Resistance: Reclaiming an American Tradition." In an inspiring narrative history, Jeff Biggers reframes today’s battles against the most authoritarian White House policies in recent memory as a continuum of a vibrant American tradition. "Resistance" is a chronicle of the courageous resistance movements that have insured the benchmarks of our democracy--movements that served on the front lines of the American Revolution, the defense of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, the defeat of fascism during World War II, and landmark civil rights and environmental protection achievements.
