Child of Today Learns About “Flower Children” of Yesterday

STORY BY: Eleni Karabinis-Guy
YEAR: 2016
LOCATION: Montreal, QC

After seeing BOOM, Eleni was excited to start researching things that happened during that time. She chose hippies because it seemed fun and she hadn't spent time with the topic before so it was a new opportunity. She talked about the liberal counter-culture that started in the US and the UK then spread to other countries. Eleni talks about John Lennon and Yoko Ono's 1969 bed-in. They spent the first week in Amsterdam then the second week in Montreal, answering questions from the press and singing songs. Thanks for sharing, Eleni.
