Summer of Love: July 15th

 

On this summer night we reflect on the famous “Summer of Love” of 1967.  Flocks of people moved to California and New York City in a rare migration driven by music, politics, and a desire to return to a more peaceful time.  While the circumstances quickly changed, the summer of ’67 has remained a touchstone of modern society.  Hosts Iris and Anthony talk to three guests who experienced that summer about what it meant to them at the time and ask them to share how they feel about it now.
