The founder of the radical Weather Underground is scheduled to speak in Pennsylvania tonight. William Ayers is scheduled to give a speech at Millersville University on how to provide education to urban areas where parents aren't involved.

University officials say they have gotten plenty of calls from people complaining about Ayers upcoming appearance. Ayers' appearance is being privately funded and university officials say it has nothing to do with his past.

The 64-year-old was once listed as a domestic terrorist by the FBI for creating the Weather Underground, an anti-Vietnam War group responsible for the bombing of several public buildings during the 1960s and 70s. Ayers was also brought up during the 2008 presidential campaign because he had once been a part of a community group alongside Barack Obama.
