Rad American History A-Z: Movements and Moments That Demonstrate the Power of the People

by Kate Schatz Author and Miriam Klein Stahl Illustrator

This book gives an A-to-Z look at important moments in progressive history that are usually ignored in history classes. Each letter is paired with unique paper-cut art and explores important moments, places, and people in activism, liberation, art and politics. Idea for curious readers ages 10 and up, with entries from A for Alcatraz and the American Indian Movement occupation, through C for Harriet Tubman's raid on the Combahee River, S for the Stonewall Inn and its place in LGBTQ+ history, all the way to Z for Zuccoti Park and the Occupy movement. Sidebars and lists point to more information and other resources, making this a perfect starting point for learning more about our progressive and radical history.
