KQED, California Historical Society & California Humanities

Join KQED, the California Historical Society, and California Humanities, for a virtual preview of three animated documentary shorts from UNLADYLIKE2020, chronicling the lives of powerful women who made significant changes in California’s history.

We will be featuring stories about Lois Weber, the first woman to direct a feature-length film; Tye Leung Schulze, the first Chinese American woman to vote and first Chinese American woman to hold government post; and Charlotta Spears Bass, a newspaper editor, civil rights crusader, and the first African American woman to be nominated for Vice President.

After the screening participate in a live conversation with Sandra Rattley (Writer, Director, and Executive Producer of UNLADYLIKE2020) and Susan D. Anderson (Director of Public Programs for the California Historical Society).

This virtual program is made possible by California Humanities and by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a private corporation funded by the American people.
