American Classics: Emma Goldman
by Mark Chmiel
This month for our American Classics Reading Circle, we will explore Emma Goldman’s essay “Patriotism: A Menace to Liberty.”
It is available on-line here.
We meet on Wednesday 23 May and begin with a potluck dinner at 6 and discussion at 6.45. We gather at the Center for Survivors of Torture and War Trauma at 1077 South Newstead in Forest Park Southeast
As we did with Dr. Martin Luther King’s 1967 “Beyond Vietnam” speech in January and Henry David Thoreau’s “Civil Disobedience” in March, we will discuss Goldman with reference to our current social and political context.
