About This Item

My husband was shot off to prison, for refusing to cooperate with the draft." Baez also states that she and Harris expected to be arrested for their anti Vietnam War stance: "I feel that if he and I continue to be involved in the revolution, which we will, we'll both spend time in prison. So it's just something that you have to adjust to." Opens with views of Harris being arrested by Sheriffs. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
