Overview

This is a 3,600 word illustrated monograph on Famous Cases of the FBI. Some call this series "Cliffs Notes for busy people."
In the 1960s, almost half of America’s population was under 18 years of age. This glut of adolescents along with the Vietnamese War set the stage for a unsophisticated effort to revolt against the status quo: sexism, class struggle, and the Vietnam War. On campuses across the country, radicals provoked anger, and the anger boiled over into violence.
Martin Luther King, Jr. founded the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), an organization to promote nonviolent protest. However, it grew increasingly radicalized. Some within this group were discontent with the low level of militancy and splintered away to form the Weathermen (later called Weather Underground Organization, WUO).
The Weathermen, was one of the most violent, counter-culture groups the FBI encountered during the 1960s, and 1970s. the Weather Underground Organization and others bombed a series of government and private buildings in the decades of the 1960s, and 1970s.
