Go back to school with this alphabet book, each letter of which tells the story of an inspiring moment in America's progressive history—one that isn't always covered in history classes. "A" is for Alcatraz, and the Native occupation of 1969; "C" is for the Combahee River Raid, a Civil War action planned in part by Harriet Tubman; "Z" is for Zuccotti Park, and the Occupy movement that briefly took over the world. Paired with dynamic cut-paper art by Miriam Klein Stahl, the entries explore four centuries of politics, art, activism, and liberation, including radical librarians, Supreme Court Justices, punk rocker grrrls, Southern quilters, and modern witches. In addition to the 26 core stories, sidebars and dictionary-style lists expand the discussion.
