This Thursday, February 26 at 10:00 AM to noon (EST), join Nellie Hester Bailey, of Behind the News: The World and Fran Luck of Joy of Resistance: Multicultural Feminist Radio, for a Black History Month Special on Black Women Leaders of the Civil Rights Movement. Find out what Gloria Richardson, Daisy Bates, Ella Baker, Diane Nash…and many others, actually DID, that changed the course of history!
We’ll offer listeners 3 award-winning DVDs plus an interview with activist-scholar Professor Carol Giardina, author of Freedom for Women: Forging the Women’s Liberation Movement 1953-1970 who, along with Maretta Short, lays out the meaning of leadership and why this word is rarely applied to women–even when women do the same things as the men who are called leaders!
The entire package of 3 DVD’s plus the audio CD interview, will be available to listeners for a pledge to WBAI of $150.00. The DVDs can also be ordered separately for $50. apiece and the CD can be ordered separately for $25. (That’s a savings of $25. if you order the whole Women’s Leadership package).
