Values of the Counterculture- Kristen Zulli

The values of the new counterculture were much different then the time periods we studied in the past.  Nearly half a million young and free spirits gathered for “three days of peace and love” to hear music and, in the process, became a community with one another. Woodstock advertised free space to roam and be free, instead of living in an area full of sky scrapers and traffic lights. All seemed to want others to engage in relaxing crafts and time to express themselves in the desire they choose.  The Be-In also pushed the new peaceful era with suggesting to others to bring things such as flowers, and instruments. These things would be sure to bring people together during the event and create a more bonding and welcoming atmosphere then in the past.
