"We are the people of this generation, wrote Tom Hayden in 1962, bred in at least moderate comfort, housed in universities, looking uncomfortably to the world we inherit. After college, Hayden continued his activism from the streets of Chicago and Newark and a seat in the California State Legislature. Hes attended ten Democratic National Conventions six times as a delegate. He authored or edited thirteen books and taught at Pitzer College, Occidental College and Harvards Institute of Politics.
In Denver for his eleventh DNC, Hayden will appear today at 3 p.m. at Cameron Church, 1600 South Pearl Street, to discuss his new book, Voices of the Chicago 8: A Generation on Trial. Tomorrow, also at 3 p.m., political commentator Bill Press will be at the church to discuss his newest book, Trainwreck.
