Yiddish Cartoon on Emma Goldman's Fight for Freedom of Speech, June 4, 1909

The caption under this cartoon 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 the "noise-maker," June 4, 1909.
