Original photograph of Jerry Rubin, 1970
New York: United Press International, 1970. Vintage photograph of activist and counterculture icon Jerry Rubin during the trial of the Chicago Seven, at the Dirksen Federal Building in Chicago on February 15, 1970. Stamp of United Press International on the verso, along with a printed mimeo snipe.
Rubin, along with Abbie Hoffman, David Dellinger, Tom Hayden, Rennie Davis, John Froines, and Lee Weiner, was part of the Chicago Seven, a group tried for conspiracy related to antiwar and countercultural protests during the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Although each of the defendants was aligned with multiple left-wing and radical organizations, Rubin was best known as one of the cofounders of the Youth International Party (YIP, better known as the Yippies), an organization which used theatrical protest tactics to gain attention for antiauthoritarian causes.
8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus.
