Description - Fugitive Days by Bill Ayers

Bill Ayers was born in privilege, and is today a highly respected educator and community activist. For ten years, he lived as a fugitive, stealing explosives, planting bombs, hiding from the law. The story of how a young pacifist-a preschool teacher, no less-came to help found one of the most radical political organizations in US history is told here with amazing candor and immediacy. It offers an eyewitness account of these defining events of the 60s: Detroit Riots, Chicago Democratic Convention of 1968, The Days of Rage, Founding of the Weathermen, murder of Fred Hampton (Black Panthers), townhouse explosion in Greenwich Village that killed Diane Oughton and others, break-out of Timothy Leary from jail, bombing of Pentagon and US Capitol.
