Immigrant Girl, Radical Woman

San Francisco Public Library

This art exhibition showcases a multi-disciplinary project involving historical research, vivid text and compelling black and white drawings and prints of artist and writer Robbin Légère Henderson. It illustrates the memoir of an early twentieth century immigrant and activist Matilda Rabinowitz. Through dramatic artwork it shows her journey to the United States, her political awakening and work as an organizer for the IWW, a turbulent romance and her struggle to support herself and her child. The exhibition presents scores of original artwork along with Matilda's story in her words, ephemera and documents that tell her life story.
