This week on From the Vault we continue our celebration of Women's History Month with special guest host professor and author Dr. Bonnie Morris, an adjunct professor of women's studies at George Washington University, and author of Eden Built by Eves: The Culture of Women's Music Festivals. Morris gives us a guided tour of the women's music collection in the Pacifica Radio Archives thanks in part to a grant by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission at the National Archives. Artists featured include Margie Adam, Meg Christian, Kay Gardner, Holly Near, June Millington, Edwina Lee Tyler, Judy Grahn, and the Berkeley Women's Music Collective.
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.
