Culture Jamming: A Long View Back - A Panel Discussion With John Sinclair, Leni Sinclair, Pun Plamondon, David Fenton, and Genie Parker

Saturday December 10, 2011: 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm - The Michigan Union - Pendleton Room - 530 S. State Street on the UM Campus

UM Professor Bruce Conforth moderates this panel discussion with John Sinclair, Leni Sinclair, Pun Plamondon, David Fenton and Genie Parker--all members of Ann Arbor's White Panther Party and Rainbow People's Party. All were central to many of the actions and ideals surrounding Ann Arbor's counterculture. The panelists will reflect on their "total assault on culture" during the late '60s and early '70s- what worked, what didn't, and what it means today.

"Culture Jamming: A Long View Back" is the final event of the Library's 'Freeing John Sinclair: The Day Legends Came to Town' series celebrating the launch of AADL's Freeing John Sinclair website (available Friday, December 9), marking the 40th anniversary of the John Sinclair Freedom Rally that took place in Ann Arbor on December 10, 1971.

on website, "prison guards were paying more attention to the Tigers game on TV"?

In December? This ain't Honduras. Do you mean Pistons' game? Or Lions, although not many night games back then in NFL.
