My client was an active member of a communist and counter culture book store in Boston, Cambridge Mass called The Red Book. Below, my client was very gracious to allow me to photo her photograph of the front of the book store. What a piece of history to add to this rare counter culture book. 
If you not familiar with the Weather Underground, was an organization first active in 1969, founded on the Ann Arbor campus of the University of Michigan, as a branch of SDS (Students for a Democratic Society). They were a militant group, politically active and determined to bring down American Imperialism with direct action and education of politics. The FBI considered them to be a terrorist group which gave the government the "right" to threaten, arrest, spy and kill people associated with the group. 
Along with the great Black Panther Party, the Weather Underground, members were knowns as Weathermen, the group put themselves on the front line to defend civil liberties and stop the abusive powers of the local and federal government.
