Introduced by Sam Green, director of The Weather Underground
Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn are two former leaders of the Weathermen, a splinter faction of Students for a Democratic Society that eventually turned to violence and went underground. This talk is especially apropos at a time when many in the Occupy movement are debating the strategic value of "non-violence" versus "diversity of tactics." Ayers is Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, the founder of the Small Schools Workshop and the Center for Youth and Society, and has taught and written extensively about social justice, democracy and education, the cultural contexts of schooling, and teaching as an essentially intellectual, ethical, and political enterprise. He is married to Bernadine Dohrn. Dohrn is a Professor of Law at Northwestern University, the founder of the Children and Family Justice Center and co-founder of the Center on the Wrongful Convictions of Youth, serves on the Board of the National Coalition for the Fair Sentencing of Youth, and is working to abolish the sentence of life without possibility of parole for juveniles in Illinois.
