‘Immigrant Girl, Radical Woman’ with Robbin Légère Henderson presented by Colorado College at Colorado College - Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Arts Center Film Screening Room, Colorado Springs CO

The slide/lecture will cover an early labor activist and organizer’s memoir with drawings and commentary from a recently published graphic novel-style book by artist, Robbin Légère Henderson, the memoirist’s granddaughter.

Immigrant, activist, and feminist Matilda Robbins (née Rabinowitz 1887-1963) was an important, though largely unrecognized, labor organizer and writer, committed to the improvement of workers’ lives and dedicated to personal freedom and social justice. She worked as an organizer for the Industrial Workers of the World from 1912-1917, choosing to become a single mother in 1919.

Combining memory, history, and imagination — Robbins’s writing with Henderson’s black and white scratchboard
