|The Human Be-In kicked off the Summer of Love and the 50th Anniversary of this event was celebrated just last year. The Human Be-In was originally conceived as an opportunity for the San Francisco Bohemians and Berkeley radicals to join forces in celebration of their respective counter culture ideals. The Stage was taken by the major San Francisco bands of the day, as well as Psychedelic advocates, political radicals, beat writers and spiritualists.
Key figures included Tim Leary, Ram Dass, Allan Ginsburg and Jerry Rubin who spoke to the gathering of 30,000. The Be-in was a true illustration of the ideals of the Haight and probably the last true gathering before the innocence of the culture would be lost.
Due to the unsurpassed historical significance of this image and the incredible Rick Griffin design, this handbill is considered one of the most important and desirable images ever created. The worldwide demand has always overwhelmed the tiny available supply, creating a Blue Chip Classic Rarity that always becomes the highlight of any collection in which it resides.
