February is Black History Month

We honor one of the co-founders of the National Organization for Women (NOW),  feminist Civil Rights Lawyer and Priest, Rev. Dr, Pauli Murray. Rev. Murray was an African-American civil rights activist, who was arrested for refusing to move to the back of the bus in Petersburg, Va. 15 years before Rosa Parks bus protest; and she organized restaurant sit-ins in Washington, D.C. 20 years before the Greensboro sit-ins. She was one of the most important thinkers and legal scholars of the 20th century, serving as a bridge between the civil rights and women’s rights movements. Reverend Murray was a feminist icon ahead of her time, who challenged race and gender discrimination in legal, societal, academic and religious circles. And yet today, not many would recognize the name of the Reverend, Dr. Pauli Murray – let alone her indelible impact on American law, civil rights and women’s rights. As a black, lesbian, feminist woman, Pauli Murray has been almost completely erased from the narrative. It is time she was recognized.
Something to think about: “If one could characterize in a single phrase the contribution of Black women to America, I think it would be ‘survival with dignity against incredible odds’…”– Pauli Murray, “Black Women-A Heroic Tradition and a Challenge” (1977)

We honor a second African American Woman, Ella Baker. Ella Baker was a dedicated civil rights activist, who worked with the NAACP, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee among other organizations. Spurred on by her grandmother’s tales of slave master cruelty, Ella spent her life fighting for equal rights while single-handedly taking care of her niece. A documentary chronicled her story in 1981 entitled ‘Fundi: The Story of Ella Baker’. ‘Fundi’ was her nickname, which came from the Swahili word for a person who passes down her craft to the next generation. Ella definitely left an impressive legacy behind for us to be grateful for.

2. Alexandra DeLuca calls in from EMILY’s List Washington DC headquarters to describe EMILY’s List and its30-year  history. Thanks to the Women’s Marches of in January 2017 and January 2018, there has been a surge of interest in women running in political elections as progressive Democratic Party candidates. To date over 30,000 women have applied for their campaigns in 2018, 2010 and 2022. Alexandra explains how women can start the process by expelling myths of running that often dampen the initial enthusiasm at the Run to Win Link with trainings and networking the candidates to resources and funding, as listed on Emily’s LIst website.

About our Guest: Alexandra DeLuca is the Press Secretary for EMILY’s List, an organization that works to recruit, train, and elect pro-choice Democratic women to office. Her background is in political communications, and before coming to EMILY’s List during the 2016 election cycle, worked as a communications consultant for progressive non-profits. She graduated from Georgetown University, where she studied government and theology, and, while a Chicago native, grew up in London, England. A dual citizen, her loyalties primarily lie on this side of the Atlantic – except during World Cup matches.

1.   We, Elaine B. Holtz and Kenneth E. Norton, interview ourselves as the Producers of the Women’s Spaces Show to reveal a bit more about about what motivates us in putting the show together.  As an exception to featuring only women guests  on Women’s Spaces and starting a tradition on this last show of the year, Elaine interviews Ken and then Ken Elaine about our backgrounds, challenges and inspirations on our life journey apart and together. Like the Yin and Yang symbol, there is a mix of our lives in this show.  Since Elaine is the voice of Women’s Spaces we will provide a bit more time in the interview of Ken, whose voice on the show has been confined to “Good Morning,” until today.  Ken provides the technical expertise for the broadcast, the archiving of the shows on this website, and collaboration on producing the show with the “still small voice” of conscience in mind.  Ken was especially influenced by his mentor William Hermanns, and recounts his first meeting with him.  Ken also shares his mentor’s Ten Words to the Creative Spirit that for him act as his Soul’s operations panel, and Ken feels that no Soul should be without these Ten Words, and no Soulcraft without these ten functions.  Elaine recounts some experiences that gave her the courage to voice her concerns on women and peace issues that eventually led to her radio show.

1. Dr. Harriet Fraad, Psychothrerapist, Author,  Feminist

—-

1.   Dr. Harriet Fraad talks of her early involvement in the Women’s Movement in the Sixties and its transformation over 50 years.  The Me,too activism since the recent Harvey Weinstein accusations, bolstered by a sitting President who was called out for his sexual predation during the 2016 Campaign, and engulfing established men in powerful leadership positions in entertainment, major media news, sports and other industries, including churches, prompted Dr. Fraad to write an essay Sexual Assault, Gender and Capitalism, which she discusses with Elaine.  Harriet describes what is fueling the current trend of women to raise children alone, and how boys are raised to be men with very limited avenues of emotional expression like sex and violence, such that the men’s fury of unmet needs are projected onto women rejecting sex.  Harriet encourages cooperation to replace competition, and change top-down corporate structure to co-operatives.

About our Guest:  Harriet Fraad, Ed.D, is a psychotherapist and hypnotherapist in private practice in New York City. She is a founding member of the feminist movement and the journal Rethinking Marxism. For 40 years, she has been a radical committed to transforming US personal and political life. She writes regularly for Truthout, and journals such as Tikkun, and The Journal of Psychohistory. Her latest book written with Richard Wolff and Stephen Resnick is Class Struggle on the Home Front (Palgrave 2009). She writes a blog called Economy and Society with Richard D. Wolff that appears on her website, harrietfraad.com, and the website of Richard Wolff, RDWolff.com. Her newest publication is an essay written with Tess Fraad-Wolff, Imagine Personal and Sexual Life Under Socialism which appears in the forthcoming book Imagine Socialism in the USA (Harper Collins, 2013).

2. & 3.  Christine Castillo and Catelin Quinn talk about their paths leading them to work at Verity, helping female and male victims of abuse.  Christine has worked for the organization when it was called United Against Sexual Assault and led a rebranding and focus on the mission of Verity working in cooperation with the community:  Verity facilitates healing and promotes the prevention of violence by providing counseling, advocacy, intervention, and education in our community. Caetlin joined Verity and speaks with the passion of a “Me, too” Wounded Healer, as she shares her story of abuse at Sonoma State University, where this abuser of multipler women students was shielded by the Professors and Administration and allowed to graduate with enough recommendations to enter Harvard Law School. The Verity 24×7 Crisis Hotline and counseling are strictly confidential.  Since those younger than 18 years old are in guardianship and the law mandates reporting, Verity first informs the youth not to give any identifiers before counseling them.on the phone and lets clients know if a next step would require breaking the confidentiality to allow free choice in the decision.

About our Guest: Christine Castillo is the Executive Director for Verity earned her Bachelor’s Degree in psychology from Sonoma State University, with external work for her Master’s Degree in psychology. Chris has over 35 years of experience with nonprofit organizations in Sonoma County, working with diverse populations and cultures. She is committed to eliminating myths and stereotypes surrounding sexual assault and bringing our community together to become better informed, educated and able to speak out against sexual abuse. Chris will continue to pursue her passion for community collaboration.

About our Guest: Catelin Quinn is the communications coordinator: for Verity. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2015, where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and a minor in public policy. While studying at Cal, she was involved with the student organizing, government affairs, and nonprofit work for a variety of progressive causes in the Bay Area and Washington, D.C. After a year of getting reacquainted with what Sonoma County has to offer, Caitlin decided she wanted to do meaningful work in the community where she grew up, and joined the Verity team in July 2016.

1.  Mariana Diaz shares how she, a recent  immigrant from Mexico came to produce a radio show. Marianna describes how during the Wildfire Disaster in October she and other volunteers at Radio KBBF gathered at the Santa Rosa studio to provide vital emergency news in Spanish and English to the community in Sonoma County.  The Spanish was especially needed because of the large immigrant population that only speaks Spanish.  This Wildfire Disaster was compounded by the fear of undocumented immigrants facing arrests by the Federal ICE agency if they reported to the shelters.  Translating the comforting words of the acting Sheriff Robert Giordano that records would not be turned over to ICE was very important. The assembly room of Radio KBBF was turned into a center to gather donation items for the immigrants left stranded by the fire, some of whom wondered if they had jobs to go back to.

About our Guest: Mariana Diaz was born in Guadalajara, in the state of Jalisco, Mexico. In 1997 she graduated from the University of Guadalajara with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. In the same year, she came to the U.S to study English.  In 2015 Mariana joined the Napa-Sonoma Small Business Developement Center (SBDC) to work with the Hispanic business community and share her passion for entrepreneurship. Mariana provides one-on-one business advising and offers business education workshops. On KBBF she hosts the show, Sé la Mejor Versión de Ti (Be the Best Version of Yourself) where she co-hosts the show with Juan Jose Sanchez Sandoval who is a  recognized Psychologist in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

2.  Pat Kerrigan recounts waking to her Kenwood neighborhood on fire around midnight of October 8, 2017, fleeing in her car with only her pet thinking that surely her home would be the next to burn. Pat saw that the danger was not to just her home and neighborhood, but to the whole city of Santa Rosa by a wildfire whipped by huricane force winds and decided the best place for her was at the local radio station KSRO, where she normally starts her morning news show at 3 AM. Pat shares how she made decisions that night and the following two weeks of keeping the residents of Santa Rosa and the county of Sonoma informed with vital information on the extent of the fire, the location of evacuatrion zones and shelters, and routes of safe passage, while comforting and encouraging community cooperation during the urgent time. Pat reminds us of the need for local news, that canned corporate news from the far perspective cannot satisfy.

About our Guest: Pat Kerrigan is dedicated to the people in her community, making sure listeners have a place to be heard, to be informed, and to remember to have fun in the morning! Pat Kerrigan is dedicated to the people in her community, making sure listeners have a place to be heard, to be informed, and to remember to have fun in the morning! She has worked for several local stations in the area including morning shows for KZST and Q105. In 2001, Pat heard a local doctor speak about the need for a non-profit breast care center for women, and went to work. She procured the talents of Lily Tomlin (who performed for free), and raised a quarter-million dollars in one night: seed money for the Sutter Breast Care Center, She currently is the News Director and anchoring the morning newscast on the historic airwaves of Radio KSRO. Personally, Pat continues her commitment to serving her community, where she hopes to help kids with self-esteem and confidence issues through public speaking.
