Named after murdered Black Panther Zayd Shakur, he is the son of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, former leaders of the Weather Underground, an American radical left-wing organization founded in 1969. His brother is Malik Ayers. His parents shared legal guardianship of Chesa Boudin, son of Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from Fugitive Days: Memoirs of an Antiwar Activist by William Ayers (Beacon Press, 2009), p. 301: "On April 26, 1977, at 8:41 Am, Bernardine pushed Zayd Osceola into our world in a rush of blood and joy after a long, long labor. Zayd, named for a Black Panther comrade murdered by the police, was born in our bed in a third-floor walk-up in the Fillmore district."

By Fillmore he presumably means the district in San Francisco.
