This book is about Emma Goldman
"Emma" by historian and acclaimed playwright Howard Zinn, brings to life the stirring narrative of Emma Goldman, an indomitable figure in American history. Known for her radical ideologies, Goldman was a fervent advocate for feminism, anarchism, and free speech, which ultimately led to her expulsion from the United States. Through Zinn's engaging prose and dramatic flair, readers are transported into the tumultuous world of early 20th-century activism, exploring themes of gender equality and civil liberties that resonate deeply even today. Published on September 1, 2002, this play not only delves into Goldman's fierce opposition to World War I and her crusade for voting rights but also highlights her profound insights on personal freedoms and social justice. Ideal for adult education settings, "Emma" serves as a crucial reflection on the power of voice in the relentless pursuit of equality. Engage with this narrative to rediscover a pivotal era of resistance and the extraordinary woman who dared to challenge the status quo.
