Vicki Gabriner (1942-2018)
A civil rights, peace, feminist and lesbian activist, Vicki (Levins) Gabriner was born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in a politically active family. In 1968 she moved to New York City to teach, and, during this time, joined the Weathermen. In 1970 Gabriner moved to Atlanta, Georgia, and helped to found the Atlanta Lesbian Feminist Alliance. In 1979 she moved to Boston, Massachusetts, where served as project coordinator for a women's oral history project at the Jewish Women's Archives (1998-1999). This collection documents Vicki Gabriner's radical political activism and life as a Jewish lesbian feminist, primarily in Atlanta, Georgia. The collection contains correspondence, notes, minutes, printed material and ephemera such as flyers and handouts, Gabriner's FBI and other surveillance files, and legal documents, as well as files on Gabriner's work with the Jewish Women's Archives and other Jewish projects in Massachusetts. There is very little personal material.
