CLARA BINGHAM joins S.T. Patrick to discuss her oral history Witness to the Revolution: Radicals, Resisters, Vets, Hippies, and the Year America Lost Its Mind and Found Its Soul. Bingham’s work mainly focuses on the 1969-1970 school year, which begins in August with the Woodstock concert and the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. From there, we discuss events such as the My Lai Massacre, the killings at Kent State and Jackson State, and the violence of the Weather Underground, as well as figures such as Daniel Ellsberg, Seymour Hersh, Tom Hayden, Abbie Hoffman, Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dorn, and Bobby Seale. This is an outstanding performance by an outstanding guest, folks! Listen to Clara Bingham on the Midnight Writer News Show.
