Mother Country Radicals

5.0/5

Critic Rating

Zayd Dohrn was born underground - his parents were radicals and counter-culture outlaws, on the run from the FBI. Now Zayd takes us back to the 1970s, when his parents and their young friends in the Weather Underground Organization declared war on the United States government. They brawled with riot cops on the streets of Chicago, bombed the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol, broke comrades out of prison, and teamed up with Black militant groups to rob banks, fight racism - and help build a revolution.

"...it’s so rich and detailed and I didn’t want to miss a nuanced breath or small detail. This story could be a mess—there are so many timelines and pivotal moments but this show is perfectly pieced together. This is an unusual, important story well-told, and gives a voice to radical politics and the strategic extremes people will go take to change the world."
