This year marks the 50th anniversary of The Summer of Love. And the timing could not be better.
In the summer of 1967 over 100,000 young people converged in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury for what has become known as The Summer of Love.
Hippies. Flower children. Freaks. Peaceniks. The Love Generation. We now know these free thinkers as the counterculture, and they’re responsible for one of the 20th century’s most transformative cultural movements.
The Summer of Love was more then drugs, free love and rock ‘n’ roll. It was the awakening of a generation of activists who stood up against the establishment and fought for the environment, equality and peace.
Now more then ever America needs a good dose of The Summer of Love.
