In the popular imagination, U.S. anarchism ended with the deportation of Emma Goldman in 1919, only to re-emerge recently with the masked Black Bloc. But according to scholar Andrew Cornell, anarchism survived and thrived in mid-century America, deeply influencing bohemia, Civil Rights, and the New Left.

One response to “The Lost History of 20th Century Anarchism”
An excellent guest, very knowledgable and insightful re anachism. Expecially interesting was the time segments — early US anarchism, the 1930s and ’40s, the role of anarchism in the Civil Rights era, and on up through today.
And it was a good conversation with Sasha Lilley.
