hippieToday in lecture we discussed the emergence of hippies and what their culture consisted of. The Beat Generation gave way to the hippies who experimented with their sexuality, drugs, and fashion. The hippies wardrobe consisted of tie dye, beads, fringe, and were all about peace and love.

They associate with indie and alternative music and are typically described as young Bohemians.
