Remember the many assertions from Obama’s opponents during the Presidential race last year that Obama was "palling around with terrorists?"  This hour we speak with two of those alleged "terrorists," Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

They’re both university professors who have been devoted to social and political activism since the 1960’s, best known as two of the founding members of The Weathermen, a radical activist group born out of the struggles for civil rights and against the war in Vietnam.  They join us to draw from their rich experiences to reflect on politics, activism, and our society with us, and to discuss their new book Race Course: Against White Supremacy.
