Kate Schatz and Miriam Klein Stahl on Rad American Women

Politically Re-Active with W. Kamau Bell and Hari Kondabolu #38 May 18, 2017

Listeners, you and your kids need a new alphabet – specifically, one that starts with “A is for Angela Davis”. In this episode of Politically Re-Active, we talk with writer Kate Schatz and artist Miriam Klein Stahl about their illustrated children’s books, _Rad American Women A-Z_ and _Rad Women Worldwide_. We also dive into ways that you – yes you! – can join the resistance in your local community through Solidarity Sundays, a network of feminist activist groups that meet each month to engage elected officials and build intersectional communities for justice. It’s art, action, and the alphabet, all in this episode of #politicallyreactive.
