Berkman and Zeller settled in New York in 1974, and he returned to community medicine. She worked in hospitals and began to learn acupuncture. They married and had their daughter Sarah in 1976. Berkman’s politics became increasingly anti-imperialist and anti-racist as he joined the primarily woman dominated May 19th Communist Organization. Much of their work was to counter the rise of the Ku Klux Klan and to do anti-racist work through his leadership in the John Brown Anti-Klan Committee, that became a national organization. He agreed to treat Black and Latino radicals after they had been beaten by the police, and was suspected in helping bomber William Morales escape from his hospital prison. His politics were becoming dangerous.
