Mary Ratcliffe: Strengthening Our Communities Through Community Media

Mary and her husband, Willie Ratcliffe, took over the San Francisco Bay View in 1992 and have built it into the nation's largest circulation Black newspaper.  In this interview with Kate Raphael, Mary talks about her history as president of the unusual National Organization for Women chapter in Fairbanks, Alaska, a hilarious encounter with Betty Friedan, how women won the right to work on the pipeline, and what she and her husband have tried to do with the Bay View.  As a long-time racial and media justice activist, she also shares her views on the past and current crises at KPFA and Pacifica and how we can put the community back into community media. 35:13
