In high school, I checked out a history handbook book on anarchy from the public library. The text gave a thorough history of the anarchist movement in America, including a profile of anarchist pioneer Emma Goldman.
Emma (1869-1940) is awesome! She fought for women's access to birth control, and was jailed for encouraging people not to enlist for the draft in 1917. She even wrote essays about homosexuality, which back then, was totally cutting edge. She's also responsible for inserting gender politics into modern anarchist philosophy. I immediately made her a hero!
So where does the food come in, you ask? Right here in Kittee Kake's
All Hail Emma Goldman Oatmeal Chocolate Cherry Cookies:
When I ordered Kittee's zine Papa Tofu awhile back, I was immediately drawn to these ... mainly because of the name. But honestly, you can't go wrong with a combo of oatmeal, chocolate, and cherries. These were super chewy, my favorite cookie texture! Thanks Kittee!
BTW, you guys should totally order Papa Tofu here. It's filled with Kittee's famous desserts (cakes, pies, cookies), as well as New Orleans food and African cuisine.
My next post will be (drum roll, please) my cupcake creation for this month's Iron Cupcake challenge, so stay tuned. I'll leave you guys with my favorite Emma Goldman quote:
"If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution."
— Emma Goldman
