Free Voice of Labor: The Jewish Anarchists Radio interview with Jack Shalom for Pacifica
Click on the triangle or link above to hear Jack Shalom’s conversation with director Joel Sucher as broadcast on December 1, 2020 on WBAI NY and Pacifica affiliates across the nation.
In 1980, Joel Sucher made a film called Free Voice of Labor: The Jewish Anarchists, which was a portrait of immigrant life in the U.S. as seen through the eyes of sweatshop workers who made up the Jewish anarchist movement. Between 1900 and World War I, these Yiddish-speaking anarchists constituted an influential political movement affecting trade unions, newspapers, left-wing culture—and hysteria—in the US. Now 40 years later, that film has been re-released. Jack was happy to interview one of the original directors of Free Voice of Labor, Joel Sucher.
