Participation was at the heart of San Francisco’s counterculture, and nowhere was this felt more strongly than in gatherings where likeminded people came together in support of social and political change.

"The spring and summer of 1967 brought nearly 100,000 outsiders, activists, and dreamers to San Francisco.
