In this extraordinary memoir, Zimmerman writes about registering black voters in deepest, most racist Mississippi; marching with Martin Luther King Jr. in Chicago; helping to organize the 1967 march on the Pentagon; smuggling medicines to the front lines in North Vietnam, and more.
From the Publisher:
The author discusses his life as a risk-taking social advocate who dodged FBI gunfire to airlift food to Sioux Indians, registered black voters, marched with Martin Luther King Jr. and worked to end the Vietnam War, in a book where he also documents his interactions with such historic figures as Abbie Hoffman, César Chávez, Jane Fonda and more.
Annotation:
A veteran of the battlegrounds of 1960s radicalism, Bill Zimmerman's memoir reports on some of his most famous episodes as a crusader for social change. Still an active political consultant, Zimmerman was once a march organizer who walked with Martin Luther King on voter-registration drives in the South and who rallied to end the Vietnam War in Washington and elsewhere. Stuffed with historic encounters and small examples of courage and generosity, TROUBLEMAKER encourages dissidents everywhere that perseverance strikes a deeper protest than disillusionment.
