KRON-TV news footage from July 16th 1969 featuring a press conference with Joan Baez who talks about her husband David Harris's arrest: "Today, as a group of men shot off to the moon. My husband was shot off to prison, for refusing to cooperate with the draft." Baez also talks about an upcoming concert tour of the east coast and expecting a baby in December. This is followed by views of Harris being arrested by Sheriffs. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
