Former left-wing radical William Ayers is coming to Colorado for a speech at the state's flagship university, just after being denied entry to Canada to make a speech there.

Ayers has been invited to speak next month at the University of Colorado in Boulder. Also speaking is Ward Churchill, a former CU Professor fired two years ago on plagiarism allegations after he equated some September 11 victims to Nazi Adolf Eichmann.

Ayers is a former member of the weather underground who featured prominently in republican efforts to thwart Barack Obama's Presidential Campaign. Ayers was invited to speak at the University of Toronto last month, but Canada denied his entry.

Churchill and Ayers will take part in a student-organized lecture about academic freedom March 5.
