Zest author/illustrator Shing Yin Khor, whose protest art went viral online after the 2016 election, creates 365 pieces of inspiring art as she explores American protest movements in the 20th and 21st centuries one day at a time. Each page includes a piece of art and a brief description of protests that took place on that day in history. Major protests are covered, such as the suffragettes movement, The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, anti-Vietnam War protests, The Solidarity Day March, equal rights marches, LGBTQ protests, The Million Man March, Black Lives Matter, and many others. Resist covers lesser known regional marches and protests as well. There are inspirational quotes and famous speeches from the "disrupters" who have made a difference. A very diverse range of social, political and racial marches and protests is covered.
