This week on Love (and Revolution) Radio, we speak with author Lisa Brooks about her research into the lesser-known histories and overlooked narratives of King Philip's War. By digging into archives and listening to silenced voices, Lisa's tale of courageous resistance is not the one your history books told you. Tune in this week to hear about Weetamoo, a female Wampanoag leader, and James Printer, a Nipmuc scholar versed in more than six languages. We'll also talk about why knowing these stories matter, not just to the past, but to our lives today.
