Description

The purpose of this Oral History Project is to give a vivid impression, and first-hand account of a movement that emboldened youth to create their own peace loving society. The Hippie Movement represented a haven, constructed in the midst of a time of ceaseless rebellion and riot. Understanding the happenings of the movement, furthers the understanding of trends in the United States that fueled unrest. Through a first person account, the driving force behind the 1960s youth may be explored in an authentic state. Utilizing oral history is a chance to illustrate more clearly interviewee Ann Fishman’s experiences, and involvement in an impactful and transformative event in history.
