Seldom seen original handbill for a truly pivotal event in the history of hippie culture. The full title of this 1-day event was Pow-Wow A Gathering of the Tribes for Human Be-In. Held in Golden Gate Park on January 14, 1967, this ushered in the Summer of Love. Speakers included Timothy Leary, Allen Ginsberg, Dick Gregory, Richard Alpert, and more. The bands included Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Country Joe & the Fish, and others. The Diggers were there and set up tables to hand out free turkey sandwiches thanks to a few dozen turkeys donated by the legendary acid maker Owsley Stanley. He also donated a few thousand hits of his latest batch of LSD called White Lightning! This handbill, measuring 8 1/2” X 11”, was never made into a poster. Design by Michael Bowen. Pictured in the Art of Rock Book on page 197, plate 2.216 although this is the rare black & white version. In Excellent Condition with only light handling and corner bend all in the upper right corner.
