Summer of Love and Haight

Event detail

During the summer of 1967, young people from throughout the country flocked to San Francisco for the promise of a cultural, political, and social revolution. The epicenter for this experience was the previously unnoticed, suddenly notorious, Haight Ashbury neighborhood. This exhibit showcases period photographs and films, rock posters, grass roots newspapers and flyers, record albums, and manuscript materials from community groups and City of San Francisco collections, all documenting the upheaval of the Summer of Love of 1967. Opening event: film screening of Revolution, followed by a panel discussion. July 16, Main Library, Koret Auditorium.

Be part of the happening. Exhibitions, author talks, arts and crafts and more as San Francisco Public Library celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love. See the SFPL Summer of Love Program Guide (PDF)
