Your Call 021909 What are the Weather Underground's founders saying today?

Forty years after they announced their intentions to overthrow the U.S. government by any means necessary, what is the message of the founders of the Weather Underground today? On the next Your Call, we'll speak with Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, co-founders of the Weather Underground and authors of Race Course Against White Supremacy. Why are they placing white supremacy at the center of their analysis of American politics? You can join us by calling in or emailing us at What has changed since the heyday of activism 40 years ago? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
