Goldman-Emma-1 - still image

The Noisemaker: Emma Goldman's career, followed closely by many in the Yiddish-speaking world, provided the newspaper Der Grosser Kunds (The Big Stick)—subtitled "A Journal of Humor, Wit, and Satire"—with a great deal of subject material. The caption under this cartoon, which appeared on June 4, 1909, reads: "Emma Goldman, the grogger [noise-maker] and Free Speech in America." The cartoonist effectively pokes fun both at Goldman's outspokenness and at the authorities' attempts to silence her.
