Student Rioters: Who Were the Weather Underground?

The Weather Underground, a radical left-wing organization active in the United States from 1969 to 1977, emerged from the anti-war and civil rights movements of the 1960s. Primarily composed of white, middle-class, and college-educated students, the group's primary objective was to overthrow the U.S. government through violent revolution, believing that the government was inherently racist, imperialist, and oppressive. Known for their bombings, bank robberies, and anti-war protests, the Weather Underground became one of the most notorious domestic terrorist groups in American history.
