Katherine Ann Power

As a student activist, Katherine Ann Power moved from protesting the Vietnam War to waging guerilla war to overthrow the government. A bank robbery undertaken to finance this “revolution” resulted in the murder of Boston police officer Walter Schroeder. After fleeing and living as a fugitive for 23 years, she surrendered to authorities in 1993, pled guilty to armed robbery and manslaughter, and served six years in prison. She uses her very public inner journey from the politics of rage toward the practices of peace to inspire people to open their hearts, eyes, and minds.
