Overview

Outraged by the Vietnam War and racism in America, a group of young American radicals announced their intention to "bring the war home." The Weather Underground waged a low-level war against the U.S. government through much of the 1970s, bombing the Capitol building, breaking Timothy Leary out of prison, and evading one of the largest FBI manhunts in history.

"Sing a Battle Song" brings together the three complete and unedited publications produced by the Weatherman during their most active period underground, "1970 to 1974: The Weather Eye: Communiques from the Weather Underground"; "Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism"; and

Sing a Battle Song: Poems by Women in the Weather Underground Organization.

Sing a Battle Song is introduced and annotated by three of the Weather Underground's original organizers--Bernardine Dohrn, Bill Ayers, and Jeff Jones--all of whom are all still actively engaged in social justice movement work. Bernardine Dohrn, who during her years underground was on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list, today is a child advocate and professor of children's law and international human rights. Bill Ayers, education professor and author of numerous books on democratic education is the author of a memoir, "Fugitive Days." Jeff Jones, an environmentalist, fights global warming and other environmental threats that disproportionately harm the lives of the world's poor.

Idealistic, inspired, pissed-off, and often way-over-the-top, the writings of the Weather Underground epitomizes the sexual, psychedelic, anti-war counterculture of the American 1960s and 1970s.
