Lincoln Cushing, author of All of Us or None, and Mat Callahan present an incredible slide show of dozens of rock and political posters from the 1960s and 1970s, discussing the role of music and art in the politics of the era, and the way the commercial culture worked to co-opt and reintegrate that burst of creativity into the demands of consumer capitalism.
