VIDEO: The Story of Abbie Hoffman

Hi Readers,

Here is a fascinating video about one of the most influential revolutionaries of the 1960s hippie movement - Abbie Hoffman. Enjoy!

Part 1


Part 2


Abbie Hoffman is featured in this 30 minute documentary that explores a firebrand of the 1960s. Abbie used humour and outrageousness in his pursuit of the American promise of equality and fairness.

Rabbi Norman Mendell said in his eulogy that Mr. Hoffman's long history of protest, antics though much of it had been, was 'in the Jewish prophetic tradition, which is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.' Part 1 is 8 minutes long. Part 2 is 7 minutes long. Uploaded by avildsen1221 on Jan 21, 2009.
