The Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the First Human Be-In

The First Human Be-In held in San Francisco on January 14, 1967, ushered in the Summer of Love. It was a pivotal conclave with an estimated 20,000+ people in attendance.

I love that the event served as the passing of the baton from The Beats Gary Snyder, Allen Ginsberg and Michael McClure to the Flower Child generation. It is where Timothy Leary stated, “Tune In, Turn On, Drop Out”.

Today is the 50th Anniversary of that historic event, San Francisco, and the world will celebrate together!

If you’re going to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you’re going to San Francisco
You’re gonna meet some gentle people there – Lyrics By: Scott McKenzie, Song: San Francisco
