Ahhh, 1967’s Summer of Love. The good vibrations that brought about flower power, holistic thinking, an emphasis on art and meditation and, of course, that famed guiding trifecta of peace, love and happiness. Younger generations’ growing skepticism of America’s government finally gave way in January of 1967 when more than 30,000 convened on Golden Gate Park for a “Human Be-In,” an event that, in addition to promoting communal living, free love, the realigning of political power and impassioned consciousness, kick started the Summer of Love.
By the time summer rolled around in ’67, San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury neighborhood was the place to be, with more than 100,000 descending on it to practice the New Age philosophies. Channel the good vibes with this classic throwback, and pay homage to the one of the most transformative moments in America’s history, one whose echoes are still felt today in public policy and music like the Grateful Dead and the Mamas and the Papas.
