Your Call: Who are your favorite rad American women?

Who are your favorite rad American women? On the next Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about City Lights’ first children’s book Rad American Women A-Z: Rebels, Trailblazers, and Visionaries who Shaped Our History . . . and Our Future!  Writer by Kate Schatz and illustrator Miriam Klein Stahl chose 26 famous and unsung heroines. A is for Angela Davis, E is for Ella Baker, and P is for Patti Smith. Who would you add to the list? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.


Kate Schatz, writer, educator, and chair of the School of Literary Arts at Oakland School for the Arts

Miriam Klein Stahl, visual artist, co-founder/lead teacher of the Arts and Humanities Academy at Berkeley High School
