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.
