Led by Harvey Smith
The McGee-Spaulding District could be considered a hotbed
of Berkeley 1960s radicalism and counterculture given the
number noted activists and alternative living communities
located in the neighborhood. This walk will explore the
many locations where activists lived and the houses that were
home to experimental communes. We will briefly explore
the political and social roots of these causes, the intervening
backlash, and the lasting influence of the counterculture
movements of the ‘60s.
The route is entirely level and wheelchair accessible.
