This informative docuseries offers insights into why and how certain people break laws to bring attention, and subsequent changes, to larger societal problems. Some of these lawbreakers, especially those who are interviewed for the series, appear extremely sympathetic as they contextualize and justify their extreme efforts to motivate positive social change. But historians, as well as those who were directly impacted by their actions, take the other side as they underscore the harm done to others in the name of whatever it was they were fighting for.

It's not always action-packed, but the series will appeal to history buffs interested in making connections between key (and sometimes forgotten) historic events and how they affect our lives today. It also offers the important social and political contexts for each of these events, which are often underscored as reasons for some of these extreme behaviors. Regardless of whether you believe they're heroes or villains, the people featured are a part of our history and worth talking about.
