Emma Goldman in Spokane - Our Radical Legacy

/
  • Overview
  • Spokane author and scholar Richard Sola discusses Emma Goldman's several visits to Spokane during the early 1900's. Goldman, the anarchist, feminist, and free-spirited thinker who was exiled from the United States because of her outspoken views, including her opposition to World War I, wrote about her visits to Spokane and the Spokane press wrote about her, with coverage ranging from describing her as being one of the most dangerous persons in the U.S. as well as in surprisingly kind ways. Goldman's Spokane visits became the model for tours here by Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, Margaret Sanger and Lucy Parsons, all major first wave feminists. Come learn about Emma from Mr. Sola's talk and then plan to attend Spokane's Stage Left Theater's play "Emma," showing at the theater March 3-19, 2017.
