Discusses his memoir "Resister: A Story of Protest and Prison During the Vietnam War"
Dancis attended Cornell University for a number of years in the 1960’s and was
president of Cornell’s Students For a Democratic Society (SDS). He was a well-known anti-
Viet Nam war activist, draft resister and organizer. He was one of the first CU students to tear up his
Selective Service draft card publicly. He spent 19 months in federal prison for his actions.
He wrote a fascinating book about his experiences, which we will focus on in this of this interview.
It’s called Resister: A Story of Protest and Prison During the Viet Nam War.
