Pacifica Radio Archives' "American Women Making History & Culture"

Brian De Shazor, Andrea Marcovicci & Kat Kramer

Sonali Kolhatkar

Guest, Kat Kramer & Beverly Todd
I attended a very interesting & enjoyable fundraiser recently for the Pacifica Radio Archives at the Feminist Majority in Beverly Hills...  Don't worry guys, men were welcome too!  The evening was well hosted by KFPK's upbeat Director of Pacifica Radio Archive's Brian De Shazor & Sonali Kolhatkar host of KFPK's popular show "Uprising".  The VIP Host Committee was comprised of Karen & Kat Kramer, Lily Tomlin, Dr. Helen Caldicott, Kathleen Quinlan, The Bonpones, Sabina Virgo, Lucia Chappelle, Andrea Marcovicci, Beverly Todd, Evelyn L. McDonnell & other noted personalities.  KFPK has embarked on an important & ambitious 2 year project entitled "American Women Making History & Culture" and as a special treat we heard excerpts from the poignant,  thought provoking, sometimes humerous collection from the likes of Anais Nin, Dr. Margaret Mead, Lily Tomlin, Judy Chicago & Audre Lord.  Performer & activist Kat Kramer has appeared on KFPK several times over the past few years with her pals Tippi Hedren, Lily Tomlin, Dr. Helen Caldicott and Donna Walker talking about her film series called "Kat Kramer's Films That Change The World" & last summer she and her mom Karen participated in a Centennial Tribute to her father Stanley Kramer where they played an archival 1968 interview with him.  Photos by Billy Bennight.
