Lessons and Legacies of the Weather Underground
Bay-area release of Outlaws of America: The Weather Underground and the Politics of Solidarity
Featuring writer-activist Dan Berger and ex-Weather Underground members

FREE

To celebrate the release of Outlaws of America, join former Weather Underground members and historian Dan Berger in a discussion about the history, politics, and lessons of one of the most famous groups to come from the 1960s movements. This special event takes an open, honest and critical look at a group that initiated a bombing campaign at the height of 60s radicalism to fight racism, war, and capitalism—and what significance this group has to offer today's world.

"Berger is a master historian and storyteller who manages to reveal and recreate what the lived experience of the sixties was like for a group of militant idealists who wanted to make a difference." —Hernán Vera

"Hopefully, Dan Berger represents an emerging generation of radical activist scholars. In a meticulously researched study of the Weather Underground, Berger writes a gripping story, drawing important lessons for the younger generation of activists."—Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz

"We have waited a long time for a book like this."—George Katsiaficas

This event is supported by Poets & Writers, Inc. through a grant it has received from The James Irvine Foundation.
