CANCELLED- Rad American History A-Z Book Talk with Kate Schatz
Please joining us in welcoming Kate Schatz to speak about her newest book, Rad American History A-Z: Movements and Moments That Demonstrate the Power of the People.
Rad American History A-Z is an illustrated collection of radical and transformative political, social, and cultural movements in American history. Each letter of the alphabet tells the story of a significant moment in America's progressive history--one that isn't always covered in history classes: A is for Alcatraz; B is for #BlackLivesMatter; S is for Stonewall; and V is for Voting Rights. It shares the stories of people and groups who have dared to be different, to ﬁght for their rights, to create something new, and to defy unjust laws and corrupt power.
