Description

Deftly charting the sweeping socio- political changes of the Sixties that
began with the Civil Rights movement and culminated with angry protests against
the U.S. war in Vietnam, REBELS WITH A CAUSE is told through the eyes of the
Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). Begun in 1960 with a handful of
members and high ideals, SDS became a nationally powerful antiwar organization
with over 100,000 members. But in 1970 the group began to disintegrate amidst
internal conflict and government counterintelligence crackdowns. In the
aftermath, some went militant as the ill-fated Weather Underground; others
channeled their activism through prominent careers as journalists, politicians
and professors.
