With Speech as My Weapon, Emma Goldman and the First Amendment
A document-based teaching unit
This unit provides students with the opportunity to explore freedom of expression by focusing on Emma Goldman, a major figure in the history of American radicalism and feminism. In a period when expression of controversial ideas was itself dangerous, Goldman insisted on her right to challenge convention. Devoting her life to assessing the individual’s potential for freedom, Goldman left an intriguing body of personal papers, and her activities generated extensive newspaper coverage, government surveillance reports, and legal papers. Students will investigate documents drawn from these sources in a study of issues related to freedom of expression.
