Dr. Candace Falk, Emma Goldman Papers
Author Dr. Candace Falk has spent years researching and editing books on Emma Goldman, training hundreds of students in the art of historical research and collaborating with them to create the largest curated collection of Emma Goldmans papers in the world.
Goldman was deported in 1919 after almost two years of prison for speaking out against the laws that mandated military service. She was an outspoken Jewish immigrant who held the country to its promise of free speech and justice for all. Viewed by some with fear and lionized by others as a forward thinking rebel woman who dared to counter dominant norms on such issues of as womens independence, free love, birth control, marriage and homosexuality, war, prisons, and the suppression of free speech. She saw capitalist greed as the engine of disproportionate wealth and dire poverty and education as a force for the nurturance of creativity and critical thinking. Her vision of social harmony was one that encompassed everybodys right to beautiful radiant things.
Falk brings this uniquely prescient voice to life!
