Conspiracy to Riot: The Life and Times of One of the Chicago 7
Conspiracy to Riot: The Life and Times of One of the Chicago 74 1 5 Author: Lee Weiner Narrator: Josh Bloomberg
First dubbed the "Conspiracy 8" and later the "Chicago 7," the group included firebrands like Abbie Hoffman and Bobby Seale, but also a little-known community activist and social worker named Lee Weiner, who was just as surprised as the rest of the country when his name was called.
The ensuing trial was a media sensation, and it changed Weiner's life forever. But as he recalls in his memoir, the actions that brought him before a jury and a vindictive government were part of a long tradition of American radicalism that had shaped him from an early age and remain directly relevant to today's efforts to change America for the better.
From Weiner's Jewish family's leftist political roots to wild anti-war demonstrations on the streets and high-profile political appointments, Conspiracy to Riot shows how commitment to your ideals can change your destiny–for better and for worse.
