with Bernadine Dohrn, former Professor of Law at Northwestern University

Involved with the Weather Underground Organization, an American militant, radical left-wing organization founded on the Ann Arbor campus of the University of Michigan in 1969. The pair are life partners.

In an era defined by mass incarceration, endless war, economic crisis, catastrophic environmental destruction, and a political system offering more of the same, radical social transformation has never been more urgent—or seemed more remote.

A manifesto for movement-makers in extraordinary times, Demand the Impossible! urges us to imagine a world beyond what this rotten system would have us believe is possible.

In critiquing the world around us, insurgent educator and activist Bill Ayers uncovers cracks in that system, raising the horizons for radical change, and envisioning strategies for building the movement we need to make a world worth living in.

An event held at the First Congregational Church in Oakland on Sunday, March 14, 2004 with Mabel Williams and Kathleen Cleaver.

These two inspiring women of the 60s Black liberation struggle met to share their personal experiences – resisting the KKK and police repression, forced into exile by government repression, and their international experiences in Third World nations.

Mabel Williams, with her late husband Robert F. Williams, met with Malcolm X, Ho Chi Minh, Che Guevara and Mao Tse Tung to help internationalize support for the Black Liberation Movement.

Kathleen Cleaver was Communications Secretary and the first woman on the Central Committee of the Black Panther Party.
