This week on From the Vault we highlight a visit to Pacifica Radio Archives from George Washington University Women's Studies Professor Bonnie Morris, who spent a day at the Archives listening to recordings preserved through our grant project, "Women Making History and Culture from 1963-1982." We spoke with Professor Morris after she had a chance to screen some of the newly-transferred audio; this July 2015 studio interview with Professor Morris is mixed with audio from some select grant recordings and other women's recordings from our collection:
- Musical performances by Meg Christian (1975), Berkeley Women's Collective (1974), Amparo Ochoa (1984), Witchazel (1975), and The Rubber Band (1976)
- Spoken word recordings that include Selma James and Adrienne Rich
From the Vault is presented as part of the Pacifica Radio Archives Preservation and Access Project, funded in part by an award from the GRAMMY Foundation and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission at the National Archives and Records Administration, and past grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Ford Foundation, and the American Archive funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, along with the generous support of Pacifica Radio Listeners. We also thank our partners and collaborators at the Pop-Up Archive, Amara, Other Minds Archives, George Blood Audio, and the California Audio Visual Preservation Project.
