Activism and Violence: Moral and Strategic Question [RSVP DEADLINE TODAY]

MarkRuddCFA Program Manager Erinn Roos-Brown writes in:

Join the conversation as Rob Rosenthal (Sociology) interviews Mark Rudd, an activist, organizer and founding member of The Weather Underground, an American radical left organization founded in 1969. The organization had as its goal “the violent overthrow of the
government of the US in solidarity with the struggles of the people of the world.” Listen to Rudd tell about the federal charges of bombing
and conspiracy that made him a fugitive for seven years.

The discussion is held in conjunction with the Outside the Box Theater Series production, HOME/SICK.
