Praise

Rad American History A—Z is a book I wish I had when I was growing up—and it’s a book I hope to read to my children one day. In such chaotic political times, Rad American History is a critical tool for young people to know how change happens—and to know that they too can make change happen. This book belongs on all library shelves and in history books as a transformative approach to history as we know it.”—Alicia Garza, founder of BlackFutures Lab and co-founder of Black Lives Matter

Rad American History A–Z is an engaging, fascinating, and necessary book that speaks truth to power. I’ve been a fan of the series for a long time and I know this addition will be a gem for all who read it.”—Congresswoman Barbara Lee

“I love all of the RAD books written by these ladies, but I think Rad American History A–Z is especially important. It’s a deeply researched, well-written, and powerfully illustrated look at our country and the people who have fought to make it better. It opens the door on many important struggles in history to minds, young and not-so-young, who may be inspired to think about conflict, protest, and social change in a new way.”—Corin Tucker, lead singer of Sleater-Kinney

“As multifaceted as the nation itself, Rad American History A–Z is an alphabet’s worth of movements and moments that have shaped the United States, including many history-makers such as young people who are often marginalized or omitted from traditional textbooks. Kate Schatz’s lively, accessible text and Miriam Klein Stahl’s energetic original art combine in a clear-eyed yet hopeful view of our shared history as a living thing—something we are all still creating.”—Rebecca Stefoff, adapter of Howard Zinn’s A Young People’s History of the United States and James W. Loewen’s Lies My Teacher Told Me: Young Readers’ Edition
 

Rad American History A–Z by Kate Schatz and Miriam Klein Stahl is a fabulous book! In telling the story of powerful moments in a people’s history of the United States, they fuse dynamic movements for social justice with labor history, iconic cultural innovations, landmark Supreme Court decisions, and feminist, anti-racist, and LGBT actions. With brilliant illustrations and clearly written stories of resistance, the book is an irresistible, joyous celebration of the power of the people.”—Bettina Aptheker, distinguished professor emerita of feminist studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz

“The lively writing and the complementary black-and-white illustrations make this an enticing read. . . . A concise and intriguing survey of the relentless fight for social change.”Kirkus Reviews
