In his December 1992 interview with Ron Chepesiuk, Philip Berrigan detailed his part in the ‘60s Radical Movement and his current aspirations. Berrigan, a former Catholic priest, told of his nonviolent actions that landed him in jail many times. He covered the topics of Jonah House, United States imperialism, the antiwar movement, his view on violence, underground life, prison life, and Vietnam. Berrigan also discussed his motivation for entering the antiwar movement, the reason for why the movement fell apart, and the sexism of the movement. This interview was conducted for inclusion into the Louise Pettus Archives and Special Collections Oral History Program.
