Audrey Goodfriend, lifelong anarchist (1920-2013)

audreyFrom the upcoming film “Anarchism: A Documentary“:

This is a short clip from an interview we conducted with Audrey Goodfriend in 2011 for a still incomplete documentary on anarchism.

Audrey Goodfriend was a lifelong anarchist born into an anarchist family (which led to some of her friends jokingly referring to her as a black diaper baby). She was involved in all sorts of radical initiatives throughout her long and inspiring life and was instrumental in the formation of the Walden School.

We only met her twice during our documentary filming, but I’ll remember her youthful enthusiasm, her amazing tales of growing up in an anarchist household in the ’20s and ’30s in the US and the fact that, despite her age, she hung out with the most radical group of Bay Area anarchists. I’ll also remember how, just as she was leaving a gathering I’d arrived at, someone turned to me and whispered in my ear, “that’s Audrey. She knew Emma Goldman.”

Here’s a short overview of her life: moesbooks.com/pages/Audrey-Goodfriend.html
