Born Richard Falk Goldman here in Rochester, Hananiah Harari studied at MAG’s Creative Worskhop, which he described as “a haven, and my first venture into the world of art.” He assumed his new name in 1935, about the time he became active in leftist politics. The cartoons he contributed to the publication The Masses caused him to be blacklisted in the 1950s during the McCarthy era.
