Judith Alice Clark

Judith Alice "Judy" Clark was a radical political activist in the 1960s and '70s. She became a prominent member of the Weather Underground Organization and participated in much of its political agitation and criminal activities. Still pursued by police after the WUO's dissolution in the mid-1970s, Clark continued her course independently through the rest of the decade, working frequently with other radical and extremist groups including the Black Panthers and the Black Liberation Army. She was finally captured during the infamous Brink's robbery of 1981 in Nyack, New York. Unrepentant in the courtroom, she was sentenced to the maximum penalty allowed by law; she is currently serving a sentence of 75-years-to-life at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in New York. Clark was born on November 23, 1949. She grew up in a Jewish family with her older brother and parents, Ruth Clark and Joe Clark. Her parents were members of the American Communist Party for many years. As an infant, Clark lived in the Soviet Union from 1950 to 1953. After the family returned home to the U.S., her parents withdrew from the Communist Party, disillusioned with the Soviet Union.
