One of the few truly underground publications, Osawatomie was published by the Weather Underground clandestinely while they were on the run from the FBI. The photo used on the cover of this issue is the now-famous ‘The Soiling of Old Glory’ taken by Boston Herald-American photographer Stanley Forman at an anti-busing rally held in Boston on April 5, 1976.
