Emma Goldman: Revolution as a Way of Life by Vivian Gornick

Tue / Oct 27 / 7:00 pm 

Location: Zoom

Listen to author Vivian Gornick in dialogue with Rabbi Cosgrove as they discuss her book, Emma Goldman: Revolution as a Way of Life. Emma Goldman is the story of a modern radical who took seriously the idea that inner liberation is the first business of social revolution. Her politics, from beginning to end, was based on resistance to that which thwarted the free development of the inner self. The right to stay alive in one’s senses, to enjoy freedom of thought and speech, to reject the arbitrary use of power—these were key demands in the many public protest movements she helped mount.
