Presentation1.ppt hippies

  1. 2. WHO ARE THESE hippies and what the hell do they want? <ul><li>It all happened so fast­suddenly young men were wearing long hair and growing beards, young women were dressing like peasants and wearing psychedelic colours, all of them seemed dirty, drugged, and disrespectful of their elders and society at large. They were dropping out of college, starting up rock bands, living in communes, and travelling to the far reaches of the planet. To many it was frightening, mystifying, and inexplicable. Luckily the publishing industry was ready to help explain the unexplainable, often with hilarious insights into a world they viewed from the outside. Shown are a number of books that purport to explain to a bewildered society just what was going on with this new phenomenon called the hippies. </li></ul>

  10. 11. The Beatles were very popular among almost all progressive-minded social groups of their times. That made them good bridge-building Ambassadors for the 1969s Peace Movement/ Hippy Movement. Yet, some of The Beatles still shocked parts of the public and their fans when they openly spoke out on various issues.
  11. 12. There were many happenings, be-ins, folk music festivals, concerts, coffee houses where hippies gathered and in many parks and on many campuses where there were long haired boys, some music, a sense of brotherly love and a smell of incense in the air... was a time and a place of a hippie festival/ holiday.
