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.

On the next Your Call, we’ll talk about the year in democracy.  It has been one full year since Tunisian fruit vendor, Mohamed Bouazizi, set himself on fire--setting off a domino chain of revolts and revolutions in the Arab world and around the globe.  Now there are 150 cities with Occupy movements in California alone.  What’s the moment from the 2011 grassroots uprisings that will stay with you?  Join us at 10 or email us at feedback@yourcallradio.org.  What does democracy mean to you today?  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and You.

And what are the most effective methods? Are there ways the movement can be more inclusive?  Join us at 10 or email us at feedback@yourcallradio.org. What should Occupy 2012 look like? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
