Emma Goldman

This excellent two-part series gives an overview of firebrand anarchist Emma Goldman. She was a national figure, attacked by Teddy Roosevelt and a young J. Edgar Hoover, and was jailed for opposing the draft in WW I. Deported to Russia, she initially supported Lenin and the Bolsheviks but after two years there denounced them as thugs and left the country.
