The Human Be-in was perhaps “the” culminating event of the San Francisco Psychedelic scene in the late 1960’s. 

This "happening" included all of the major figures of the day. The Be-in was originally conceived as an opportunity for the San Francisco Bohemians and Berkeley radicals to join forces in celebration of their respective counter culture ideals. The major San Francisco bands of the day as well as Psychedelic advocates political radicals beat writers and spiritualists took the stage.  Key figures of the era like Tim Leary Richard Alpert(Ram Dass) Allan Ginsburg and Jerry Rubin spoke to the gathering of 30 000. In attendance were all of the tribes of the Bay Area youth movement . The Be-in was a true illustration of the ideals of the Haight and probably the last true gathering before the innocence of the culture would be lost.

Several posters flyers and handbills were designed for the Be-In this  version was created by the legendary  poster art collaborators Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley.
