Summary This filmed performance of renowned historian Howard Zinn's stage play Emma dramatizes the life of Emma Goldman, the famed 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. The play draws on Goldman's influential autobiography, speeches, and political writings to trace her emergence as one of the foremost radical intellectuals and dissident activists in America in the early part of the 20th century. Emma shows us why Emma Goldman was not only a remarkable historical figure but a woman whose fierce wit and political courage continue to resonate today. This performance of Emma was directed by Bruce Grund, and filmed by Malachi Roth. Includes a Q and A after the performance with Howard Zinn and others.
