The Emma Goldman Papers

When: Sept. 7-29 2010

"Emma Goldman is a woman of great ability and of personal magnetism, and her persuasive powers make her an exceedingly dangerous woman." So wrote U.S. attorney Francis Caffey in 1917, and so suggest the Emma Goldman Papers, a sample of which are coming to Colorado College's Coburn Gallery (902 N. Cascade Ave., coloradocollege.edu/ideaspace). We'll get only a relative few of the photographs, letters, government documents and more that Cal-Berkeley has collected since the Goldman project began in 1980, but they attest to the anarchist's incendiary work on behalf of workers' and women's rights, free speech and basically every progressive movement of the turn of the 20th century. The exhibition opens today, but you can see it anytime 12:30 to 5, Tuesday through Friday, through Sept. 29. — Kirk Woundy
