Portrait of the Chicago Seven and their lawyers as they raise their fists in unison outside the courthouse where they were on trial for conspiracy and inciting a riot during the 1968 Democratic National Convention, Chicago, Illinois, October 8, 1969. They are, from left, lawyer Leonard Weinglass, Rennie Davis, Abbie Hoffman (1936 - 1989), Lee Weiner, David Dellinger (1915 - 2004), John Froines, Jerry Rubin (1938 - 1998), Tom Hayden (1939 - 2016), and lawyer William Kunstler (1919 - 1995).
