Robin Hood

Today on Your Call: Who was Robin Hood and how is his story relevant today?

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Paul Buhle and Sharon Rudahl, author and one of the illustrators of the new graphic novel, Robin Hood: People’s Outlaw and Forest Hero.  Buhle writes: “Robin Hood and his companions were called into existence by popular desires for social revenge and social justice.  Whether they “existed” or not does not matter: they existed and exist in the hearts of rebels everywhere.”  So what has Robin Hood’s story meant over time?  How is he as powerful a symbol today as he was in the 14th century?  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and You.

Guests

Paul Buhle, founder-editor of the journal Radical America, former professor of history at Brown University, and author of Robin Hood: People’s Outlaw and Forest Hero

Sharon Rudahl, civil rights activist, comic artist, and contributing illustrator of Robin Hood: People’s Outlaw and Forest Hero
